Converting 220v dryer to 110v

There are some drawbacks.

1. It takes almost 130 minutes to dry one load.
2. Dryer must be on dedicated circuit.

If your house has knob and tube wiring, dont even think about it
Care to go into detail as to how this is done???

Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
