    If you go this way you still need to swap out the 30 amp breaker to match the saw. Based on the Docs Paul posted above looks like that needs to be a 15 amp double pole. I still think a locking plug...

    The reason I gravitated towards using a switch is it costs $14.00. A L6-30P and a L6-30R together are about $50.00. I can afford that but...

    UNCLE!
    OK, alright, and you made me say it, and say it loudly. You've convinced me to put in a cutoff in the DC closet. One can be stubborn only for so long in the face of logical arguments and the...
