Right folks - as I've got a few days of drilling and chiselling to do before
I actually get round to the electrics, thought I'd save some cash by
ordering my electircal bits online...
So a number of questions arise - thought you guys probably know toolstation
and screwfix gear better than me :)
Wylex circuit breakers - are these a 'standard' size that will fit all? I
have vague recollections from the past of getting some Wylex MCBs to replace
a 5 amp fuse and it wasn't the same fittiing? Not so easy when you can't pop
back to local shop... Anyone know what the distance between the pins is on
screwfix ones, and if they're two solid pins (I've seen some before with
effectively 4 pins - more like 2 pairs)?
Recommendations for kit to make a short (8m total) ring circuit with 4
double sockets? Any particularly good / bad cable to watch out for - bearing
in mind the bendier the better as I'm lousy at working with cable :) Same
goes for wall sockets - any got particulatly good /
bad to work with
connectors on back?
Finally one not-very technical question - I'm right in assuming that if I
want to get rid of a dimmer switch that is mounted separately from on/off, I
can just complete the circuit for the switch then bury it in wall?
Wrong-headed way to approach I know, but the ceiling rose is in a fiddly
position so I don't want to touch....
