Using 110v lead with 3pin wall plug and extension sockets to feed shed / workshop /unit?
I have some 110vv yellow thick electric cable that i want to use as an extension to my shed by taking off the 110v connectors and replacing them with whats on my genneral household extension lead's scoket and 3 pin wall pug.
Would that work or is it too thick?
Shed has 5 foot fluorescent light tube and wall plug sockets for my man cave DIY tools.

please use proper electrical gear for the desired power draw at the required distance.

Depends on how far the run is. Do it right and run the wire underground with AWG #10 underground wire.

There's no such thing as too thick when it comes to electrical wire it's better to have a thicker cord then it is to have to thin a cord.
