Upgraded fuse. Got a bit hot, but never caused a problem.

I feel like this one is practically required in these threads even if it's probably repost 587.

>screwed right into the buses on his main breaker box
And that is why you call a sparky.

The real problem you will have is that plug is not code. you can't have a 110 style socket being fed 220 even if you hang a flashing sign on it.

220V uses a NEMA 6

That fusible disconnect has problems with the insulator breaking. Though it looks good in the pic I would not reuse it.

Either way, your load center (breaker box) is fully loaded. That means you can't add more to it. It has to be upgraded. You might be lucky and some of those breakers are not in use. But you need a tandem breaker properly rated, and the proper cable Likely 10/3.

It is flatly against code to doubletap (run a second connection off the main). All connections have to be done through a properly sized breaker. And if you plan on turning this on and off you are looking for a switch-rated breaker.

Reminds me of these glow nuts, which are a special type of electrical connector that light up when overloaded.

>Turn off fuse
Then try to turn on electric device to make sure your had the right fuse. Never assume.

Also if you are adding any wires or connectors, buy to regulation, never cheap out. Otherwise you will go to prison when her house burns down (ofc depends on where you live).
