Actually looking at the NEMA connector photo it looks like one of the hot prongs may be narrower than the other, so maybe that wouldn't work....

No, though the configuration looks similar, a 6-50 plug doesn’t fit a 14-50 receptacle and vice versa. Removing the neutral will not make it fit.

As an aside, my Zencar EVSE came with a 14-50P and I wired a 14-30R (on a 30A circuit). The EVSE is set to 24A and, with the neutral blade removed, the plug fits perfectly in the 14-30R, no hammer required :-)

Obviously, you would never use an EVSE that draws more than 24A on a 14-30R.

AFAIK, that won't work with a 6-50R.
