    Just picked up 96 - 5amp single square edge sockets from S***ty Electrical factors.

    The grand total of £8 + VAT ( wasn't a mistake )

    Probably never use them but just had to buy em. What's your best purchases then?

    96 - that's funny. Didn't come with 96 plugs did it or was that an extra £400?

    Yeah just the outlets that is all, no plugs.
    I actually need 5amp sockets for a job at the moment but wouldn't dare put that dross in.

    They do have a CE mark suprisingly haha.

    You can't put electrical items in skips, it's illegal, unless its someone else's.

    The only similar bargain I got, was ordering a 3 foot flory tube, and got thirty. Fitting packed up a week later. Anyone wants some tubes.

    Your skips must pong a bit.

    Seen quite a few architects speccing 5 amp sockets on new builds for dedicated standard lamps. Can't move for the amount of standard lamps I've seen for sale recently with 5 amp plugs on them...
