Where to buy ceiling mounted twist 220v plugs


Hello - I'm setting up a woodworking shop and am in the process of planning the electrical. My table saw will be in the center of the shop and I'd like to install a ceiling mounted drop down twist connector/cord. Any suggestions on where a person could purchase the drop downs? Many thanks.

An electrical supply house is the only place you'll find this stuff.
Well, maybe the internet too.

If the cords are going to be hanging down, you will need strain relief connectors. I personally prefer the strain relief with the rubber compession ring and the braided metal sock. I can't remember the trade name for this type of strain relief, but someone here can.
Go to your local electrical supply house for this item. HD and Lowes do not have them as far as I know. Make sure you let the counter person know what type and size cord you are using. You probably should by the cord there too.
The price of shipping is making internet orders out of the question for me, especially on small cheap items.

Ps....I did not mean the strain reliefs and cords will be cheap.

Kellum is what it is typically called in my area. That is a brand name.

Chinese finger trap is the next thing when the guy looks at me like a deer in the headlights. That usually gets an "oh ya, I know what you;re talking about"
