Default What male plug to use ?

I have a Delta table saw with a 3-prong male plug. The saw is 220 and I need to plug into a 220 wall outlet that has a different looking 4-hole plate on the wall. The wall plate reads: NEMA 14-30R; 30 amp 125/250V.

What kind of male plug should I buy to replace the existing 3-prong plug with so I can begin using my table saw? Thanks for your help

I'd recommend getting out the ol' phone book and looking in the Yellow Pages under "Electricians".

It sounds to me like you have all the info you need for the job. And if you had to ask after supplying the info you did then you are in the wrong house. What scares me is the fact it had a NEMA 5- 15P cord cap installed on a supposedly 220 v motor.
