So I replied to an ad on freecycle for some electrical bits and pieces (thinking I could get a couple of switches and a new socket or two to replace the knackered ones in the garage).
I actually got -
6 downlighters and bulb holders / connectors
11 drywall single socket boxes
4 drywall double socket boxes
6 fused single switches
1 3 pole fan switch
1 triple light switch
1 quadruple light switch
3 double sockets
1 single sockets
a few screw bits and assorted connectors / screws and a random pencil.
Now the question is,, how much of this will actually be of any use to me? I'd need an electrician to do anything with most of it but I'd like to hang onto the downlighters as they might be of use when we redo the dining room, assume I need to hang onto some of the wagaboxs for that?
I will also hang onto the double drywall boxes because we're planning on having the bedroom sockets increased in number when we redecorate those rooms.
But what do I do with the rest of it? Don't want to toss it, and don't know a tame sparkie to give it to. Is this lot worth hanging onto or should I expect the sparkie that does the work in the end to provide all the bits?
Never been in a quandry as a result of someone else's generosity before.
PS there may well be a bonus prize for identifying the large rubber funnel kind of thing that was included as well. I'm screwed if I know what it is.
