Thread: 110/220 volt adapter

  1. #21
    I will make a new one.

    Right now my welding job only requires around 1/3 power from the welder so I think it should be ok for that.

    I just found the McMaster-Carr sells power cords with a plug on one end and bare wires on the other.

    I looked for them before and couldn't find them. They are in the extension cord section. I will be get one to replace the cord on my adapter. I could use an extension cord but that seems like a waste.

    I was at Harbor Freight yesterday and they had a 120 to 240 Volt adaptor on the shelf. The adaptor was about 2 Ft long and had a 120 volt male plug on one end and a 240 volt female on the other. I was in a hurry and did not get any other information. I can't find it in there catalog!!
    I found it in the catalog, the number is 65942. They are rating it as a 15 amp, so it may be best suted for the smaller machines.

    That looks like a adapter for a small camper. 110 volt 30 amp camper recepticle to a 110 volt 15 amp plug.

    I think that it is listed on HF as a camper adapter.

    12 gage is for max 20 A so many machines would be pushing it. Another thing to think about is rugrats... I greatly prefer a locking connector for some thing like this to make a straight run of the cable rather then it doubled over its self with the pics shown. the other option is to get a gangbox and put a wall style 220 outlet on it rather then a floor mount dryer style outlet.
