    I know what you did, but why didn't you just change the 220 outlet that was there? I understand that it is not up to current code (two hots, ground and neutral) instead being two hots and neutral.
    Do you have other equipment that uses the old range plug?
    I am not trying to nitpick I just don't understand your reason unless it was for cost factor. I just did almost the same thing for my plasma cutter, I installed a surface mount receptacle (50A) and made up a 10/3 extension. The surface mount receptacle was about 7-8 dollars, but the box mount one was 34+dollars.
