My son decided he would do a spot of DIY and managed to drill through the
ring main cable using the hammer action on my Kango drill ... what was going
through his head at the time (apart from 240 volts) I still don't know ...
however ... he's ok but the feed and return cable are both chopped. What's
the best and safest way of reconnecting these two wires? I know I'll need to
chisel the plaster out around the cable but how do I extend and join the
cables back together?
A rofessional would probably crimp connections, but simpler for you
would be to connect using terminal block strip inside something like a
choc box..as seen on Dragon's den!!
That is not allowed if the joint is going to be plastered over.
Have a look at
I do not think that there is anything on that page that I could add to. Even
if you have to spend £20 on a crimping tool you are still better off than
calling an electrician out.
