    your best bet is to make one just the way you want it. I see your in NY, If you can find i.e. Fleet Farm or Tractor Supply Co. or something in that nature you'll probly find something.

    moe1942,

    I must agree with you. Too many extension cords are a hazard. I have done the same thing to power my Coolmate 4 cooler and Dynasty from the same power cable.

    Extension cord

    I made my own 50 FT cord using 6/3 SO wire. Made a box at the business end that has two different 240 VAC outlets and four 120 VAC outlets. With this set up I have power available for my MIG, stick welder, grinder, fan etc., with one cord.

    If it is one thing I don't need in the work area, it is a bunch of trip hazards. I'm a one man accident looking for a place to happen.

    You will be fine with 10/3 on the 175. Its only a few $ more to get the 8/3; then you would be set fora larger welder in the future. I got mine from Welding Depot before I saw them at BR. Prices are the same either way. It is cheaper to buy made up.

    Ext. cord

    Magnum21,

    You don't say how far you want to get from your receptacle, but if your best effort does'nt net you a factory made cord in your neck of the woods, you will be fine fabricating your own cord from #10/3 SO wire and the appropriate ends from your local electrical supplier. You can probably go 100' without a problem, but I would be looking at #8/3 SO wire over 50' if $$ are OK.

    Be well.

    magnum 21,
    I saw a pre-made ext. cord on ebay not long ago.You could check there. If it were me, I'd just make my own. Who knows, may end up cheaper in the long run.
