Hey /diy/ I need to set up a 60 gallon compressor shop. I'd like to keep it closer to the finishing area which is about 50ft from the breaker box. My question Is how far can I place the compressor from the breaker at maximum? Pic related.

60 gallons doesn't tell the voltage and current requirements for the compressor.
Anyway, place it in the most convenient place that is closest to the breaker.
Run pipe to near the work area.
Connect compressor to pipe with valve and short hose.
Terminate pipe with a quick-connect.
Plug 'whatever' into quick-connect when you need compressed air.
(tees and taps can be added along the way for extra air outlets)

This. Wire is way more expensive than pipe or hose. And what wire and outlet you need will depend on the wattage (voltage x amperage) of the compressor.

There is no reasonable limit to how far away the compressor can be if you use the appropriate gauge wiring.

Related: Have you considered putting it outside and plumbing in hardlines? Mine is noisy as hell, and I wish I had put it behind the garage or in the attic instead of inside. I can't talk at all in the shop when it is running.
