    Default Hooking Haas Mini Mill up to 220v wall socket verses direct wiring. Bad Idea?

    I am a bit tight on space for my recently purchased Haas Super Mini mill, so I'm planning to mount a 220v wall socket and then just run a short cord from the machine that will plug into that socket ( verses running a direct line from my box direct to the machine )

    The reason I want to go this route is to have the option of easy disconnect in case I need to move the machine with a pallet jack from time to time in order to access the back panel. ( I am planning to place the machine fairly close to the wall )

    Any concerns of using a 220v socket verses direct wiring?

    None at all. Just make sure to use a plug/socket that is rated for at least the maximum machine amps.

    I used an extension cord for my Mini Mill.
    https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Cable...extension+cord

    Just cut one end off. It shares a receptacle with the plasma cutter so only one runs at a time. We only need the plasma a few hours a week.
    The mini mill is positioned like they suggest away from the wall in my shop, however that left us enough room to use a 2' x 4' Axiom Elite router between the Haas and the wall. It is on wheels though, so can just roll out when we need to access that panel.
    I would certainly mark the feet locations so that you can get them back as close as possible to original. That said, they may mark themselves with time.
