Thread: Can I use a 15a 125v male plug?

  1. #1

    Can I use a 15a 125v male plug?

    Can I use that kind of plug from Harbor Freight for the lc-518d multiproess machine? You know the smaller plug like a 110? It fits in the wall. is it (plug only)good enough? Also can you use the mobile home 30amp one side 15amp other side ext cord?

    I would use a 20 amp minum, for the outlet and the plug. Any power loss will reduce the power to the welder. If any thing gets warm you are loosing power, outlet, plug.
