At $13 on clearance, I figured that it'd be worth it to pick up, even if I don't use it as my main box in the shop.
You're right that a panel in the detached garage requires a it's own main breaker. I wasn't thinking about that when I bought it. I guess I could put a main cut-off outside and then run it into the interior box... but that does seem to be a lot more complicated and doesn't give me a whole lot for the effort. plus, I'd have to run outside to kill the power in case of an emergency...
I'll keep looking for something with a dedicated main and/or 8-10 breaker slots.
