Shop Lighting

How much candle power / lumens per square foot needed  for a shop? Need to get some idea of how many and type of lights to buy.

Re: Shop Lighting

   I use minimum overhead lights and have post mounted halogen lights I move from place to place wherever I am working on something.  It is sometimes inconvenient but way cheaper to buy and operate than a lot of overhead lights you don't need all the time and you have plenty of light in the work area.
