    There is no need on a thermalite wall to go in gungho with an sds drill and chisel,apprentices are taught how to do it properly.
    It is easy enough to cut out half an inch neatly in thermalite with just a comb chisel,hammer and bolster.

    No excuse not to get it bang on with thermalite! You can scrape the back to a lovely flat base.

    And don't forget to tuck a rose petal in there in all.

    Lol, I would love to see it all done like described. I must admit I do take time to get things level and to the correct depth, but thought it was just me being ocd. Nice to see some others (allegedly) take pride in it. i seriously doubt it gets the love and care described here. I have no doubt Lee not a sparky in Kent does it, would expect nothing less.

    Celcons and thermolite you could almost cut with a butter knife,

    SDS the edges out and you could almost use a push knife to get them smooth

    An old set of wide Wood Chisels are ace on Thermalite Blocks for getting a smooth back

    This thread reminds me of this video...I come across it on another forum. It should give a few electricians on here a bit of a giggle :D

    Maybe he thought he thought he didn't have to with it being plastic

    I thought the same as he had terminated it to the terminal in the back box. It's really bad....he then seals the lot in with grab adhesive and makes a right hash of it...That SWA looks the mutts nuts :D
