I guess what I don't understand is where is the electricity coming from
that you want to produce? In other words - if you already have 2 hot
120v legs, why do you need to create a 220 v outlet in the first
I think I _might_ understand what you are saying though - but I'm not
sure. In any event, to produce 240 v, you need not only 2 120v legs,
but two 120v legs which (someone please correct me on this) are 180
degrees out of phase.
In other words, lets say you had a 120v breaker, with a black wire
coming off of it.
Now, you hook another black wire to the same breaker, and you now have
two 120v leads, when each is measured to go ground.
Now, measure the voltage between the 2 black wires.... 0.
Man You are confusing me!
