    Hi everyone,

    did a bit of work at a fire alarm companies office that i do some work for.

    just a few local spurs from local sockets to feed some cctv.

    they had me in on day rate and said to just use any materials i could find in the stores.

    got some 2.5 t+e and wired what i needed too.

    come to connecting up and was amazed to find it was "old" colors.

    it was like stepping back in time !


    it was great !


  2. yeah I agree...bring back those red and black suspenders

    I had to re-wire some cabling inside a large refridgeration panel today. Supply is 150amp TP to panel.

    There is a row of fuses, and one had burnt out, causin the adjacent ones to fail also.

    Replaced carriers and fuses, and also replaced any blackened and stiff cabling. Had to order some tri-rated the entire panel was wired in RYB, I jokingly asked for some RYB from wholesaler......and got some! dirt cheap! I couldn't see a problem, as it was inside an 'appliace' anyway!
