Hey people, just wondering if anyone else out there is doing this. So I have a 30amp/240v 10 wire circuit dedicated for tools in my garage, which has a 6-30r receptacle, so far have only needed it for my bandsaw. The bandsaw came with a 6-20p plug, so just used an adapter 6-20r—>6-30p. Has anyone just changed the plug on the end of the cable so an adapter isn’t necessary? Thanks.
