    I am trying to do something similar- I want to hook up a 240v 20A flux welder to an old NEMA 10-30R dryer receptacle but I'm not experienced in the three pole to 2 pole conversion. Can you tell me how you wired your adapter drop cord? ( it is exactly what I am looking for ).

    We frown on people hijacking other's threads, especially old threads.
    Now you have your own.

    All you need is to just use the two 240v conductors and earth ground, leave the neutral unconnected.
