I currently have a Grizzly 0457 Bandsaw wired for 220 (L6-20) that I purchased from CL thinking I would just have a 220 outlet run.
I got a quote for running a 220 or a 20amp 120. Neither option was very feasible from a cost perspective (breaker box needs to be upgraded- couple thousand dollars worth).
At this point- I just want to sell the saw and start over but can’t power it on for anyone to prove it works (I was able to test before buying).
I thought I read here once that there is a gadget where you can connect 2×120 input lines (on different circuits) and it would spit out 220 @ 30amp. Does anyone know about this product?
Conversely I was thinking of trying to get an extension cord from the dryer (NEMA 10-30) but I don’t see anyone making such a cord. I would need at least 15’ to be able to get it to the saw.
Any help / ideas anyone might have would be greatly appreciated!
