    I wonder where the 1.0mm is?

    The electrican has taken it home for his private
    lighting jobs

    LOL..nothing would surprise me.

    Cable derated to 12amps protected by a 6amp breaker,on the average 3/4 bed house you would be pushed to reach 6amps on the lighting especially as they are usually on two circuits. 1.00 all the way, hey

    Maybe.... Maybe not

    Given the rating for 1.0mm then it has many uses and shouldn't be dismissed out of hand.

    thanks to you all, you have given me thought -but as usual never a straight answer from a sparky- and some of your comments have made me and the wife laugh.
    thanks
    the winner is going to be 1.5mm as i think that with spot lights and the size of the extension and the amount of cable i will run will be about 70metres. is the cable of this site good stuff????

    Surprising result ! as my wholesalers sell 70% 1mm 30% 1.5mm

    Try terminating 4x 3core & E plus 6 twin &E in 1.5mm in a 1 gang box !

    lok
    70% of the customers at your wholesalers must be so tite, that you could stick all your cables up their arses and pull them back out perfectly terminated without any insulation.

    rest my case

    Don't know why you want to terminate that lot in a 1 gang box but it doesn't sound very good.

    Very strong reactions from both yourself and More Advanced advanced

    Could this possibly explain the extreme homophobia you both exhibit

    Fear that one may actually be homosexual himself: Homosexuality is, by even the most conservative estimates, far more common than the number of open homosexuals would imply. And with the realization that bisexuality is actually fairly common, particularly among women, there is a genuine fear among the more conservative that they, themselves, may be homosexual, particularly if they have had a homosexual experience in their past which they actually enjoyed. And since surveys indicate that approximately 64% of adult males in the United States have, there are lots of candidates out there for that fear. Compounding this can be religion-based guilt, often promoted by televangelists who have made a career of promoting homophobia.

    The fear leads to a subconscious reaction: hate and/or kill the ***** and you're not like him, because you've distanced yourself from him. Irrational, isn't it? Yet that's the subconscious logic involved.
