I understand the humor in the "chicken" comment, but I would want competent input on the safety aspect of just changing the plug on a 220v handheld tool. My concern is safety for the user.
The OP says he has 3 phase 220v. I have 220v, but is is two 110v legs tied together not 3 phase. I run several big tools off those circuits. What's the 220v configuration Down Under?
