    now this fault was on a 20amp mcb (wylex)
    so the fault was on one of many circuits
    customer. every time I put on the mcb, it keeps blowing
    now this faulty circuit was shorting some where back to the board .
    line & neutral in .so where was the cpc .not only behind the c/u board
    that it sat behind .now this cable was vir old c**P cable.
    so when putting up the mcb a load band from behind the wooden board .so the cpc was touching the old metal conduit pipe work because I could not identified the circuit the fault was on I then disconnected it .the customer has just moved in the big house 6 months ago , I asked any reports done on this place .none .
    so I recommended a eicr to be done.

    i sold my 330 schnizer , after slamming over what i thought was a chunk of ice, turned out to be a boulder in the road LOL, still got thousands for it

    know many who would buy a car with no mot, i wouldnt because i like to drive what i buy instantly , but someone with more time/knowledge can easily invest in a car with no mot and make a profit

    guy on youtube just spent 60 odd grand on a lambo that wasnt running

    I would purchase a car with no wheels or an MOT, what has this to do with an electrical fault?

    Was your wife a virgin or secondhand?
