    Without having 240, the little outlet adapter thing won't work. No two ways about it.

    I also wired all of my double gang outlets on double legs so as to have 20A 240 available at every existing single phase outlet in the shop with the exception of an outlet mounted high on the wall for the stereo.

    Since most of these circuits are on GFI's I'll need to replace those in the event I need to utilize this design, but that's all there is to it.

      Here's my take on this. Yep, you can combine 2 110 outlets for 220 if they are on different legs in the box. Would I do this he!! no. Let me go back to Tempraiser's first post. Would you be up to your knees in danger? I think so. I addressed your question but it doesn't matter since I'm not a mod here.

      Tempraiser, are you a lawyer, aka Joe Buffalo?? If not, you should be!! You and he share so many qualities. He has the honor of being the one person on my ignore list.

        The more I read . . .

        The more I read this thread I have to think . . . What does Tempriser really want, an answer . . . No I don't think so, this is merely a form of entertainment for an egghead engineer . . . .

        Tempriser, this board is full of people who love to weld...some are pros, some are hobbiest from all walks of life . . . we all have friends, neighbors & co-workers to turn to for info on ANYTHING . . . .

        Why is it so hard for you to accept that what you want to do is unsafe...

        You do not tell us what your background is, ie . . profession or education.

        Nor do you tell us your location . . . .

        I THINK YOU ARE A TROLL ! ! ! !

          I haven't said anything for a while. I really want to know if anyone has more experience with paralleling. I talked to the Miller guys and they didn't have a whole lot of information. Has anyone modified a pedal to control two tigs?

                  I think . . .

                  Hey guys maybe we should forward this thread to Homeland Security. Maybe he needs all this power for something other than "WELDING" . . . .

                  I think if I needed to weld that bad I would "fricking move . . .

                  You know we are supposed to be on the lookout anything odd, after all it's all those over educated foreign students building the road side bombs . . .

                  You know if someone in Florida would have it thought it odd that someone wanted to learn to fly an airliner only, not take off , not land . . . just fly

                        Hey temp, I know preety well the shape of a sine wave. You are the one who said there were two phases in a single phase system. I just thought you should educate yourself before making a further arse of youself. I too get into electrical conundrums from time to time, but I do as much research for myself as I can before I demand answers from the good hearted guys on the board, even then I don't demand, but ask!

                          Actually, there are two phases in a single phase system. Seldom will you see "single phase" referred to as "two phase" but there are indeed two phases.

                                So if I use a oscilloscope I'll see two waveforms?
