This morning I went to raid the big blue store's website (Lowe's) for nice big pictures of power sockets (you know the three- and four-pin 50 and 30 amp jobbies for stoves and dryers).

Anyway, Lowe's totally messed up their website over the weekend (especially the way of zooming and enlarging pictures) and it's gotten flakier than normal so I can't take any pictures from there. I did manage to get some of their normal-sized photos that DID work.

So I stole these photos (with dimensions from Hubbell, Codelca (Colombia) and other sites! [Linked Image]

I hope these are also useful. They look clear and some are in color (which is good sometimes).

Joe , if you can save these locally for further reference, I hope these work OK.

Here're a 30-amp grounded NEMA 14-30R:

Thanks for the images they are very helpful.

SvenNYC,
That NEMA 10-30P plug, looks very similar to a plug used over here in NZ for 25A, except,
over here, the pins are thicker. [Linked Image]

Trumpy:

These things are HUGE - about the size of a bodybuilder's fist (ok maybe slightly smaller). No fooling! [Linked Image]

Are you familiar with the British 13 amp square-pin plugs and the 15-amp round-pin plugs?

These things are a little bit bigger. And the pins may be flat, but they're long - I think like two inches long or something? I don't have one, so I'm going by memory of what I've seen in the shops.
