I want to double a 220 outlet
 
I have two 220 kilns and one 220 outlet. Since 220 plugs are very difficult to continuously move in and out of their outlets, I would like to plug in both kilns and leave them plugged in, BUT only use one at a time. The kilns would never run at the same time. Is there an adaptor for this?

Thanks!

you could tap another receptacle off of the existing, what size are these kilns?

What about a switch ?
So it's one or the other !
But never both !

I have one ceramic and one glass kiln....both "hobby size"...less than 18x18x18" inside size.
Any specific suggestions for tapping off another outlet?
