    Keep it simple, use a 4 pole twist lock male on the cord end off the spot and install a female flush twist lock on the timer, as that is the electrical hot end. Use a SO or equivalent cord of the same gauge wire as the spot welders current wiring. Make the dog leg on the twist lock your ground.

    U.S. Industrial plate roller
