- DO NOT…
I did something similar recently. Went to fit a new light fitting in my Son’s room. Firstly removed the bulb then went down stairs to turn off the trip switch in the fuse box.Posted 5 years ago
To check that I had flicked the correct switch I returned to my son’s room and turned on the light. As the light did not come on I assumed I had the correct circuit switched off. Started work on the fitting. Got a good jolt. What an idiot.globaltiMember
This was how I ruined my expensive Park Tools cable cutter. Sparkie left a loop of ring main sticking out for me to cut later and add a socket but he forgot to tell me that he’d used the ring for the downstairs sockets, so when I turned off the supply for the upstairs sockets the loop was still live….
There was a loud bang and a flash and the spark eroded the cutting edge of the blade of my cable cutter. RIP.Posted 5 years ago
