I had a new breaker box installed in my basement (not a subpanel...feeds directly off of the meter) for my shop and for the basement (when I get around to finishing it). The panel is located in my basement shop (next to the original panel). I need a temporary 20-amp, 240v circuit for my tablesaw. Can I just wire the breaker with "extension cord"-type wiring to a 20-amp outlet for temporary use if the wire is braided (and sufficient gauge) or do I have to use "solid" wire inside the breaker box? The receptacle box wouldn't be permanently attached to anything....more like an extension cord and would only be about 10 feet (max) from the breaker box.
I guess a related question would be whether I could use the braided wire on the receptacle.
