Bought a new jointer for my home shop and rather than re-wire the garage, I've decided I'm going to get a generator instead. I need a generator anyway for on-site work at other locations.
The instructions for the jointer call for an L6-20 plug but all the generators I've seen have L5-30 receptacles. Wondering if there would be any issues with me wiring an L5-30 on the jointer instead so that I can plug it into the generator. The jointer has only 3 wires. Manual says it runs 220V at max 18A... so I'd have 2 hots and a ground?
