I have an old singer sewing machine, converted from treadle to an outside motor making the machine belt driven.
The existing plug is a male at both ends. It plugs into a receptacle mounted on the cabinet that the machine is in. The plug that came with it had two male ends. I understand that this is dangerous and want to correct it.
I want to make a different connection, either hard wired to the machine/cabinet and a male end to go into the wall receptacle or female/male cord to plug into a new receptacle on the cabinet.
What I am wondering is if I need to do anything special to the electrical connection that is coming from the motor to the receptacle on the cabinet or can I just change the receptacle?
Or will I need to take the motor to someone and have them change the wiring so that it ends in a male plug to go into the wall receptacle?
Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions/links that you can provide.
