Few questions about wiring. I have a 3 prong 10-30R 30A Dryer outlet not being use anymore near my Unisaw tablesaw. So, I believe the 10-30R has 2 hots (red and black in the picture), 1 (white) neutral and a bare ground pigtailed wired to the metal receptacle. The table saw needs 2 hot and 1 ground. I still need to open the main panel to see how it is wired but can I rewire the 10-30r so that the “L” pin is my new Ground (Dryer White wire) and keep the black and red as my 2 hot wires ? I assume I would just cap off the bare ground and rewire the panel to reflect my new wiring scheme. Hopefully the panel and breaker will work with what I am trying to do.
Does this make sense ?
Thanks for any help !!!
