    As the title says, I got to meet my first forum member yesterday.
    I had a problem with my upstairs lighting circuit that was tripping the breaker. I have no test equipment and didn't want to keep tripping the breaker by dismantling things and seeing if it pops again.
    So I asked @telectrix@telectrix if he could help me out. He got to the route of the problem. Of course it was the last cable in the circuit. Thanks so much @telectrix@telectrix, it was a real pleasure meeting you.

    Well I don't know any local guys who do domestic and with test equipment. Know a couple that have retired and got rid of their kit.
    I would have put it up on the job forum site but last time I told a mate to do that he hardly got any response. He ended up going with a neighbours recommendation.
    I also wanted someone I can trust. I trust @telectrix@telectrix .

    right. don't think spoon will dislike me posting what was wrong. upstairs light circuit tripping MCB violently. Meter showed a reading of 1.2 ohms, L-E. splitting the circuit down revealed that the fault was after 3 bedrooms , leaving just the bathroom, which appeared to be last on the circuit. in attic, found JB close to bathroom light, 4 cables..feed, switch, load and 1 other -perm L-N-E. this last cable had the fault we could not see where it went due to attic being boarded. thought it may have bee a feed to a long since removed fan. leaving this out restored all lights ( we thought). landing light was on downstairs circuit and since I left, spoon reported that the landing light was not working. after some thought and spoon looking in the rose of the landing light, he found that the N feed was T/E with just the black used, L& E cut off. however, turns out that this was the unknown cable with the fault. for some reason the L was connected in the JB as well as the N and E, though the L feed to the landing light came from the downstairs, linked in the 2 gang hall/landing switches, as was often done back in the day. due to the distance (48 miles) left spoon to reconnect just the N in the JB. hope that all makes sense.
