    so I understand how 2 way switching works up just needing some help with this. If I have a 2 gang 2 way switch, and I am taking the feed to the switch, do I link out the commons ?

    If you google two way switching etc and even look on Youtube there’s loads. Try John Ward or GSH electrical. Make sure you have some brown sleeving for your switched lines. :)

    It depends how it’s wired

    As your question says ‘switched’ 2 way could switch without the need for a feed
