In my quest to find a kiln I came across a 20 year old skutt 818 with an extension ring. The spec call for a 6-50 plug but it seems to have a 10-50 plug on it? can I change this back to a 6-50?

 

Is this possibly an old dryer plug added later?

 

could I possibly just plug it into a 6-50 adapter and use in my 6-50 receptacle?

Yes. You can put any cord on it you want as long as it can handle the amperage. That looks like it's probably due for a new cord anyway. The kiln will require a breaker that is 25% greater than the draw of the kiln.

Hi Niel, would a 6-50 installed last year likely be able to handle that? Its a dedicated receptacle right by breaker box on a 50 amp breaker and I have been running a skutt 1027 on it.

Yes, a 6-50 will work on that kiln.
