I used to have pretty good collection of EU/GB/US cables/adapters and stuff, but this one has stalled me for hours.
RE: Drill doctor has NEMA 5-15P (three prog) plughttp://madmodder.net/index.php/topic,11802.msg139844.html#msg139844
I went trough my collection of foreign cables/adapters/plugs and found transformer for 115 VAC, but when measured it pushed out nearly 150 VAC without load and it had two prong USA connector. When I checked it inside I was not impressed and decided to chuck it. Insulation and wiring was not really up to today's standard.
Then I raided my adapters and really don't have from US to Schuko - grounded adapter.
Drill doctor has NEMA 5-15P (three prog) plug and I have another single ended transformer that has a nice output near 115 VAC. Great. Only slight snag is that it has IEC 60320-C14 panel receptacle.
There are some adapters 3 prong Plug Adapter, USA NEMA 5-15R to IEC 60320-C14, but they are not common here. I ordered one and though that I must have some sort of adapter to gobble for spade connector in mean time....no luck. Neither I have any 3 prong receptacles or pig tails.
OK. I can cobble up stuff for testing etc. but actually I need nice panel mounted receptacle for NEMA 5-15P plug. I was having hard time finding a nice one. Can anybody help me with the correct terms or link one. Some of the shops do no send sell stuff globally (they say they do, but really don't) but least I could get a good lead.
