I would recommend getting 6-3 SO cord. If you make and extension cord remember that the neutral is open.

When I purchased my engine drive it had a Nema 14-50R, I switched all my outlets in the shop and plugs on my machines to 14-50's for convenience. That way I can run them all in my shop or on the road. Several of my friends and customer's have followed suit so I can run my equipment in their shops also.

Should we discuss the operation of a center tap transformer and explain how 230/115 V single phase power is generated for home use?
