Sorry for a 3rd post, looking at getting all my electrical diy done at moment
I have a damaged surface mounted plastic socket in the basement. I’m looking at replacing it with a metal clad one. Which has 2 earths on front plate and one in back box. I’ve read some advice that says a fly lead isn’t required, but some people advise. So if I do can I connect inbound earth to front plate, and flying earth from either front earths to back?
I have an old extension lead, can I take some earth wire off that? It says it has a 5mm earth core, but that sounds high to me , or do I take the root to get the mm squared?
