Hi guys, Recently put in a subpanel in my garage because I needed to install a 220 volt outlet for a new wood lathe I purchased. I installed a 20 amp double pole breaker and ran a dedicated 12/2 line to a 20 amp 250v twistlock outlet. I installed a 3 wire (2 hots and a ground) 250 volt rated plug on the lathe but after reading the owners manual it called for a 230 volt plug. Am I really dealing with the same thing or could there be an issue with using the higher rated outlet and plug. Thanks

John

Nap, Thank you very much. I was pretty sure this was the case but wanted to make sure before I plugged something in and smoked it. Being it's a brand new tool and all.

Again thanks for your response. :thumbup:
