Default 240v tools

The http://ecorenovator.org/forum/applia...microwave.html got me thinking about using more 240v stuff.

A few years ago I switched out my work lights that had 120v 500w lamps for 120v 300w lamps. The 500w lamps seemed to burn out quickly.
Well finished the 6 pack of 300w amps I bought back in 2009 or 2010. (I only use these occasionally)
So I am upgrading to 300w 240v halogens and putting a 6-15 plug on my light.

Trying to grind down some anti-abrasion hard facing rod welds the other day gave me plenty of time to consider that it might be time to get a bigger grinder. Well I already have one of the largest most powerful 120v grinders made so I searched 220v grinders and got a hit. A 9 inch 240v 2,400w grinder.
That should do it. But they are not cheap.

These will work well with generator support to not load up one or the other 120v legs of split phase power coming off the generator.
