    Well looks like I wasn't able to do much this time around. To many things got in the way and plenty of other excuses. Hope the spring/summer contest will hold better for me. Here're my vitals.

    That's what I'd do as well if I were in your shoes. But I'm in my shoes at least for today. And up here the cheapest Nema 14-50 plug is 50 CAD before tax at the home deep. I think I mentioned it (my...

    Choices

    Well, then it depends on what you have planned for the future or the cable specifically. If it's just an extension for the welder then you won't need the 120v and I'd say lop off the male connector....

    There are safety reasons why you shouldn't use black and white for 240v. These are conventions laid out by the NEC for the safety of you and those that come after you. If a guy (Next homeowner,...

    Don't do if you don't know

    To cover everybody's bottom side, I'll say consult with a qualified electrician first. Over here usually only the stove has dual voltage cus it has to run lights and electronics on 120v. Most dryers...

    4 plugs? It might be a nema 14-50p. Does it look like this?

    If it does you are in luck cus that's a dual voltage plug. You can run 240v and 120v with that cord. Great for having a grinder...

    Nice! I was waiting for this one too. Now all that's needed is a way to cut and fit up the tubes. Gives me a great idea for a bike trailer as a project for the summer.
