Sure ya can but honestly it can be more of a pain than its worth... its far easier and safer in the long run to just purchase an adapter.

Make extension 220 volt cord for 220 volt welder


most 220v welders have a NEMA 10-50 plug or the NEMA 6-50 plug--the input /output ratings thru recepticle and thru plug are same-configuration of plug prongs are different( Grainger Catalogue shows simularities and differences) main difference is AC Horsepower Ratings are different, and that applies Only on equipment that uses 3 phase, not your welder.Use an Ohmmeter to touch unpowered wire connection under shroud at ground and plug prong, then red power connection to corresponding plug prong, and again to black connection and plug prong,mark them w/ felt pen w/ corresponding colors (Green, Black Red). Change out wire plug to fit into dryer or stove recepticle, or make an extention adapter plug witch fits stove recepticle and extends out thru floor to carport and goes to 10-50 recepticle-whereas ground green goes to W position (Center) Y is Black and goes to Y Black, X is Red and goes to X red and cap off the white neutral coming from plug -welders and hot water tanks do not return unused electrcity via the white neutral (return) wire--they use up what is available on demand in heating elements or in welders - the electromagnetic field.GET HELP DOING THIS, by someone who has knowledge, SKILLS and EXPERIECE. I have 1 welder fitted to go into dryer plug which has 14-30 recepticle, and i have 1 where i kill stove circuit at panel, unplug stove, plug in 14-50 plug which has a 10-50 recepticle on other end, plug in welder 10-50 -p, flip cicuit breaker switch to on-welder has full power range capacity. No oven in use while welder going--but probably wouldnt run it anyway if on different circuit.Any doubts whatsoever--anything not 100% clear--DO NOT DO THIS or any other Electrical Manipulations--have a licensed electrician stub in a secondary circuit breaker off your main if load is acceptible and have him wire in the recepticle which your plug will fit into---.

How do you hook a miller s-22p8 wire feeder to a lincoln ranger 10,000 plus engine driven welder?


you can't, the S-22P8 it's not a volt sensing wire feeder, it requires 24V or 115 with an adapter. FOr CV machines only.

My GE cycle dryer came without wire to plug in. What right wire do I need to buy and how do I hook up it?


Dryers and Ranges are not sold with power cords. The reason being you may have a 3 prong recepticle (original) or a 4 prong recepticle (new construction or remodel). Check the number of holes in your recepticle and purchase the proper cord. The fact it's high voltage and the connections have to be correct and tight, I suggest you have a qualified appliance service technician or electrician install the cord. At the very least use a reputable handyman.

Wiring an electric dryer


If you are referring to the breaker / fuse box to the dryer recepticle, you would use 10-3 NM w/ ground. (that is 4 conductor wire: 2 "hot", one neutral, and one ground.) If you are referring to the dryer to the recepticle, use a pre-made dryer cord, either a 3 wire or 4 wire, depending on which recepticle your home has.

Wiring 4 wird dryer plug to 3 wire 10/3 for 220 welder


the four wire plug seperates the neutral and ground. the three wire just piggybacks the ground to the neutral. so just get a three wire cord that fits the 220 plug on the generator and install it on your dryer make sure to attach the ground correctly for your three wire setup

I have a 4 wire dryer plug and a 10/3 wire that I want to connect to a welder that is 3 wire. No idea how to splice the wire as the dryer has a bare ground. welder is 220 and 25 amp. help.....


get a 3 wire cord and install it on your dryer is the easiest way. the four wire setup removes the ground from the neutral.
just piggyback the ground to the neutral for your 3 wire setup
