Wiring for a welder
It seems most welders are 3 prong 220/230v plugs that are high amperage. I'd like to use my dryer plug to run my welder so I wanted to make an extension. Unfortunately my dryer plug is 4 wire (2 hot, 1 ground, 1 neutral). How can I make an extension cord to go from 4 wire to 3 wire?
I realize dryers use bonding straps for 3 wire applications and they are removed for 4 wire. Can I hook the neutral to the ground with a wire and run the 2 hots and ground to an end plug... or how should I do this?
Thanks ahead of time. Hopefully an electrician can chime in.
