Question about Craftsman Grinders
Yes. It is always good to use wire heavier then you require, for long runs, because resistance builds up accumulatively.
But if you need it or not depends on the actual number of amps you will be drawing from all the things in the out building at the same time, and the size of the breaker you will be attaching it to.
For example, if you were to going to run a heater and a power tool at the same time, on 12 gauge wire in the storage building, along with a couple of lights, on a 20 amp breaker, then I would suggest 10 gauge to the shed. But if you are only going to run lights and one tool at a time, from a 15 amp breaker, you could probably get away with 12 gauge.
