I just bought a miller 211 and would like to wire it to my dryer circuit. I have searched and read lots of posts that talk about making an extension cord with a Nema 6-50 input for the welder and a Nema 10-30 output to plug into the existing receptacle.
However, I can't find a Nema 10-30 plug locally so I just bought a Nema 6-50 receptacle. How do I wire up the receptacle?
I have white, red, black, and bear wire wires in the box. From reading I think I gather that I wire the red and black wire to the flat blade, and I can wire either the bear wire or white (neutral) to the round blade which is supposed to be the ground for the welder.
Is this correct? This is a dedicated circuit for the dryer and it is not used for anything esle. My dryer runs on gas and is plugged into another 120v outlet for power. Should I wire the bear wire or the white wire to the round blade in the Nema 6-50 receptacle?
