May I piggyback onto this thread?

I’m installing a Clear Vue 1800 and I have a 240v 30A receptacle, along with a corresponding plug (that goes directly to the motor). Specifically I’m using the “L6-30” type.

I have 2 questions:

First is: what kind of junction box would be good for the receptacle? I noticed with a single-gang, it’s very tight, and I wonder if it’s even legal, or I should use something larger. Is plastic ok for this, or does it need to be metal?

Second: what’s a good source for a flexible jacket wire to make a cord for the motor to the plug? I could probably use a clothes dryer cable, but they’re $20 and I was wondering if there’s something cheaper.

Thanks, and I hope this wasn’t too far off-topic.
