Is there a replacement bayonet [single blade top and bottom] with MCB to replace the wired fuses I have in my consumer unit? I've been told by a friend who is a Electrical testing sparx for Industry testing places like Oil refineries, says their is. I can't find any on the net and the local elec shops don't have anything like it. Is he pulling my leg or is there such a replacement?
I cannot afford to have the whole consumer unit changed as they want an arm, leg and an open cheque [Part P comes to mind]. One even said 'Think about equity release to pay for a full re-wire and replacement consumer unit' I told him in no polite terms where to place his electrical tools as my friend had tested the wiring and it's fine.
Why I get concerned.
How about this for a so called bona-fida electrician. I replaced the outside light on my bungalow as I wasn't happy by the lack of earth and it was fed by ordinary twin flex.
I dissed the fuse and pulled the cable further out of the wall to find the flex twisted to the twin and earth and taped up, talk about hazard. I put the new light in with the twin and earth direct into the light fitting, it's now earthed lighting.[/u]
