Hopefully you find this video useful. It seems there are a number of videos that kind of do the same thing but most seem to be of low quality and that makes it kind of hard to see what is going on. I filmed this in 4k so hopefully everything is much clearer and easier to follow.

Quick walkthrough video of the following:

* How-to setup and use a digital multimeter and use it to test your 220v/240v 4 prong outlet voltages.
* How-to cut power to the outlet at the exterior/outdoor circuit breaker.
* How-to verify outlet is no longer powered.
* How-to replace the 4 prong 220v/240v 30 amp outlet (for a dryer/etc) with a 3 prong 220v/240v 50 amp outlet (for a welder, air compressor, etc).
* How-to restore power to the outlet at the exterior/outdoor circuit breaker.
* How-to test your new 220v/240v 3 prong outlet voltages.
* Verify welder works as expected plugged into the newly installed 3 prong outlet.
