    couldn't really hear what he was saying, but after wondering why he was drawing round the box you suddenly see what's coming like a runaway train..

    EDIT: just looked up and WTF did that cable come from haha

    I have shown this to many people the joke is he actually thinks he has done a good job. I actually tried to contact him to hurl abuse at him with no success.

    I hope he has amazing legal insurance. Very irresponsible of him to tell people to "have a go" and call them if they get stuck. Nor does he mention anything about notification, by time they've paid to notify to "have a go" they'd have spent a lot more than getting someone in

    Unfortunately that's how people think these days. Oh Electrical is a doddle, Brown to Brown. Earth to Earth and blew to bits. The amount of DIY Donuts who try explaining how they have done a job and then say "Huh all this Apprentiship Bollox". I then look at there install while there waving a shitty Nokia in my face. Hold on mate. You've fed a electric shower in 2.5mm?

    Changing a socket faceplate is probably about his level, that and fitting a new plug top.

    I thought it was a spoof at first - his marking of 4 inches on the drill (I wonder what he claims to the wife!), sinking the box, the mess of sealing around the thing...He's a craftsman though lol

    I like it when he says about not teaching you suck eggs about connecting the socket cos he probably don't know himself. The amount of comments on utube is unbelievable.

    I think I'm reacting to it cause as a lad I worked with my Dad, and if I'd have done this I'd been 'told the error of my ways' for the next month. Or lifetime. Hang on, I think I can hear him now from the other side ...

    I see on the firms Materials page, they have both Metal (flush) boxes, and Plastic (surface) pattress. I wonder if scratches his head, and ponders why there's both?
    Like to see the vid, them fitting the dry lining boxes :mamazed:
