Now i have to hook it up to the shop. It came with this dryer/stove electrical plug.

I would like to switch it this style plug. Does anyone know if this is possible? 20221113_194936.jpg

You could add a receptacle to your current set up to plug it in as long as your service meets the requirements for the bender.

ok, thank you. i like your suggestion, it would be the least expensive way to go.
but the plug on the bender is in need of replacement.
while i'm fortunate to have my service panel in the garage, its on the opposite side of where i plan to use this machine.
no matter which outlet i use, i will need to add it to my service panel.
the cord on the bender is not as long as i would like. i have a 20 ft extension cord that i use with my miller 220v welder i could utilize when operating the bender.
since i need a new plug and a new wall outlet to handle the amperage(wire and breaker too), is there any reason why i can't switch to a nema 6-50 plug like my second pic shows?

Maybe run conduit from your service panel to the other side of the garage and install the receptacle where it works for you and then replace the cord end on the machine,
If you want to use the welder on the same receptacle you can swap to the same style cord end as the bender on that.
I also always run next gauge larger than the equipment cord when I make extension cords.
