    Can you deny that the original design was 10mm? No! So it should remain in 10mm.

    And I still would not put 6mm on a 40A breaker. You and @Risteard can do so if you like, but I wouldn't do it. Ok? My choice.

    Oh dear oh dear oh dear. My oh my. One is very impressed with your level of back peddling but I'm afraid you are still wrong. You are referring to the OP which is "this post". "This post" is this situation. This situation being the op running 10mm through 2m of insulation and thence to 6mm for the last two m.
    If I brought a fully populated CCU which had a 40A circuit breaker and the situation is as described in this post then I would have no qualms using it"
    This post is this one...

    Who, in their right mind, would think it to be any other one? This is what you said and this is what you meant. Don't try and wiggle out of it.
    So it would seem your totally cool with that? Running 10mm 2m trhough insulation? Even though it's a major breach of 7671?
    Obvs. you haven't been on the forum long so no one really knows what your level of experience might be, but to recommend something like that and NOT have any qualms, well I would say that's a pretty sloppy understanding of the situation AND 7671.

    You know what? I'm DIY. I don't do any sparking. Never have, never will. But it seems pretty damn clear to me that I already know a great deal more than you.

    So, for the third time, are you a spark?

    Believe me it's obvious that you're not an Electrician. You are a know-all who knows f?!k all.

    Kettle and pot come to mind.

    Go suck up with your new mate Hollie who was the one Coloumb was addressing, not you.

    A few weeks ago I thought sammi was DA.
    Now I'm sure Hollie is Lee.
