I know that this response is being very blunt BUT if I had just put out real money for a new/used tool, and then was asking on the net about wiring it up correctly,, I would just start looking for a licensed electriction . Seen too many
fires that started by electrial things set up wrong.
Remember that you are not in your shop 24/7 and a fire that may start small can grow fast.

Just my opinion.

for things I am not sure I know.

I appreciate the response and you’re right to be careful, I used an electrician to up my residential service from 150amp to 250amp and run the 240 to my garage. However, since I was just replacing a plug, didn’t figure it should require an electrician call.

With that said, if I got hit by 220, maybe it would fix the TBI I got from shrapnel in the desert. Woodworking really has helped me deal with this.
