In getting ready for my new 3hp saw stop I have wired up my shop with 240. Does anyone out there know what kind of plug I need to put in for the saw?

If I remember correctly it’s a NEMA 6-15 plug, so if you’re using a 20A breaker, you can get a NEMA 6-20 outlet. To comply with code, the outlet must match the breaker.

I’m not an electrician though – that’s just what I did.

As live4ever says, it’s a NEMA 6-15p. Cf page 36 in the manual http://www.sawstop.com/documents/PCS31230%20Owner%27s%20Manual%20%20V3.3%20%203-8-10.pdf

FWIW, I used L6-30 locking plugs and receptacles. I got them at HD. Here.
