Extension Cord

Unread post #1 by PaulE » Fri Mar 18, 2016 9:49 am

Anyone can recommend where to buy a heavy duty (high wattage capable) extension cord? I plan to use it for my table saw that is 110v.

Also, Is it possible or better if I just make my own extension cord?

Thanks.

JayL might still have those 12Ga yellow jacket cords, if not, just DIY using quality components.
Your cutting tools is only as good as your sharpening system.

I made one myself. 12 gauge flat cord, decent plugs and receptacles.

Some receptacles come with spare screws clipped inside the casing. Make sure to take those out.

I did see those yellow extension cords from sir jayl pero I'm looking sana for something cheaper. Thanks for the suggestions/tips, baka mag DIY na lang muna.

Just make your own. Make a heavy duty type. Royal cord 12 gauge is preferred. About 5 mtrs long. Buy the universal outlet for grounded three prong plug (nema L5/6) etc...encase the outlet with a wooden box to protect it from scratches. Make a hole on one side of the box where the wire will exit. Make sure you secure the wire before it exits the hole.
I think i was a woodworker in my previous life...and the life previous to that.

Tama si doc if 5 meters long extension mag royal cord ka na lang.

In my case I always needed a 25-50m long extension cord with atleast 4 outlets. Kaya I prefered the ready made extension cord.

The good US made cords are be very flexible. For this reason it would be better for longer extensions.

They make these like that because of their colder weather. When used in our warmer weather these are perfectly convenient to lay down and then store after use.
