offers on electrical accessories

I wandered in to Robert Dyas today, and noticed they are selling off all their MK wiring accessories at 1 or 2 each, presumably because they aren't stocking MK anymore. Some other makes going cheap too.
Also, I noticed B&Q have lots of their more specialised electrical accessories for sale. I guess they must be dumbing down the section, to make room for the soft furnishings, sadly.

Doubtful as most householders have never heard of Part P!

LOL. Agreed, but I was thinking more of the store in case they thought they might encourage some sort of 'illegal activity' <g>

I noticed B&Q had exterior-grade light switches and sockets in their 1 GBP bins yesterday - extremely cheap and nasty though!

I bought some external junction boxes from these bins today (3 for a pound) - I think I would be better off using an old ice cream tub. The lids on them just pop off and the material just feels dodgy. Oh and it's also a case of supply your own junctions! Then again I should have known better than to believe they may be up to the job.
That being said I di get some good (!) tools for my son's toolbox (a carpenter's square, adjustable spanner, torpedo level and some brushes). As he's only 5 he doesn't know what he's getting.

Not yet but if I see one cheap enough for him. He does like his orbital sander, an old PPoo one, and he currently wants a drill. I've told him he can have my old one if/when I upgrade to a nice one.
I work on the principle that if he does something that hurts he won't do it again and if he learns how to do stuff it means there'll be less for me to do.
Cheers

I'm yet to see *anything* in the electrical section of B&Q that I felt was good value for money, even when reduced. Their electrical accessories always seem massively overpriced.

Can't remember whether there were 5 or 6 in a pack, but had bought some recently and knew this represented good value.
