    Here's a conundrum for you chippie.

    What's brown, long and sticky?

    When you're in a hole then stop digging.
    You never learnt that did you?
    You just keep digging and digging...

    Could excavations provide the answer to poor plug design question?

    Go back to the earlier part of the discussion:

    What about high power tools such as a 2400W plunge router - approx 10A at 230v whereas 22A at 110V. With the latter you will be dragging a cows tail behind it all the time. Quality flex that could handle a continuous load of that level will be so restrictive making the work so much harder.

    True and not just routers, there are many other tools, that do require more juice, than what 110 capable of

    So basically you were talking rubbish.

    [​IMG] If you have a poor quality plug then use one of these to protect it. If you can find for £1 its great plus you get the another socket. I keep standing on plugs especially my vacuum lead plug so I keep one of these on to protect it with a blob of silicone.

    Alvy, you have to admit me n chip are quite correct, that many professional tools are 230v. All you have to do is put a rcd device into the socket first, then plug the 230v tool in. Perfectly safe. Why do you think top manufacturers produce their tools to the same high standards in both 110v and 230v variants ?

    It's been 20+years of sense on building sites, once again, 110 and 240 electric encounters are very different. Something I absolutely agree with, having had both.
    Something Brits should be proud off ;)

    Oh the 240 tools are produced as per supply and demand, but I'd say 3/4 of real professional tools in Britain are 110 for a very sensible reason

    110V are for the muppets who work on building sites in the cold and the rain and can't look after their tools.

    Now, now, you just happened to describe very succinctly my main vocation o_O except I certainly do my best to look after my tools, been hard earned.

    I'll accept window licker :p:p as you kindly put it earlier, but not muppet as well, that's harsh, man. :eek:

    I FEEL to be left with no other option, but to wish you to be negligent, unprofessional in using DIY voltage tools and to be electrocuted eventually. "Sorry"

    To lend a bit of weight to Alvy even though I disagree with him on his stance, five years ago I phoned the local Hilti rep with regards to buying a corded circular saw, could he come out and show me what they stocked? I opted for the one I preferred and asked him for the 230v version, to be told that Hilti only sell corded tools in 110v now.

    Cobblers, what about joineries across the land that use fixed machinery and corded tools without a yellow plug in sight?
