Basically I live next to an electricity substation ..
And I have in my possession a full roll of 3.029 - 4491X and a pair of
crocodile clips .. question is .. would the aformentioned equipment be
adequate enough ? or would 7.036 - 5491X be a more viable proposition ?
any thoughts ?
I forgot to mention - make absolutely sure that you hold the crocodile
clips in either hand and apply to live and neutral together. Otherwise
you could introduce an imbalance into the electrical loading with one
side (either the live or neutral) having a longer piece of cable than
the other, and all those electrons are going to get p'd off heading
down a piece of wire with nowhere to come back to.
Might also be worth checking that your will is available to whoever
needs to know.
Suspect you will have some dimming of your lights due to the contact
resistance of the crocodile clips. Better to use g-clamps. If
sticking with the croc clips, be sure to switch on both the cooker and
shower to weld 'em on real good.
Go and find your nearest Pikey site and ask them. "Obtaining electricity by
diverse means" is just a short module in the "Travellers Guild" elementary
qualification. Even the youngest trainee should be able to give you some
good advice (and steal your hubcaps).
