Just changing the receptacle could be extremely dangerous. You are likely to overload the circuit, and in the worst case cause a fire, or damage your equipment. –  Zoredache Jan 26 '11 at 7:20

Not to forget you likely would loose every kind of insurance you might have and will be personal liable for this. –  Sven Jan 26 '11 at 8:59
    
isn't it unlikely that he has a machine that takes 30 amps in the first place? –  JamesRyan Jan 26 '11 at 9:52
