  1. Been there plenty of times in my home mate, sometimes easier to go from above … but just as easy to patch below. Did you put the disks back in ready for the plasterers?

    1. @JRC Electrical haha sometimes a nice finish to pop a timber and two screws in for the client but yeah at least the plasterers or patching lads will sort it! Done it many of times in this home and much prefer a good pull up board floor above rather than chipboard!!

      Anyway what was done was required but they are awful new builds lol..

    2. @The DIY Adventure mate there is nothing worse than a brand new chipboard floor
      Glued, nailed and ran under everything absolute ball ache every time

    3. @JRC Electrical I got an access hole cutter for the chipboard from CEF about ยฃ30 and superrod do a access holesaw too which is supposedly brilliant. The hardest part then is moving all the gear out of the way to get access.. but it does resolve in less mess. Atleast you made the holes, left the cuts and the patcher can fix them holes up no problem (which saves messing with the floor). This is the option I done until the mrs said no more mess.. right I’ll go from above then.. she prefers it from above ๐Ÿ˜‰ hahaha big up

    4. @The DIY Adventure ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ yeah I was planning on getting the super rod one but I saw it then it wasnโ€™t in stock when I needed it ๐Ÿ˜‚ we normally cut a hatch up anyway but for some reason across the back wall was a joist tight on the wall so we would have struggled getting round it anyway.. nightmare

  2. Great vid as always guys ๐Ÿ‘ .. Would it be better to fit 5amp socket outlets on the 2 sockets for table lamps so no one can plug anything other than a lamp in , ie cleaner plugging vacum in ๐Ÿค”

    1. It probably would my good sir but they wanted sockets and the lamps already had normal sockets on and I donโ€™t like cutting the plug off new things ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    2. @JRC Electrical cheers Jack wasn’t a criticism mate I’m still learning so always thinking out side the box ๐Ÿ‘,
      Keep up the good work and enjoy your Xmas ๐Ÿ‘

    3. @Gary Latto I no dude, I donโ€™t mind either way ๐Ÿ˜‚ your right tho there are correct sockets for this ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ have a good one dude

  3. Big Up Jackโ€™s backโ€ฆ
    Big Up Scottโ€™s kneeโ€ฆ
    No wonder it took so long trying to get all those shots lined up ๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ got to try and get the good angles ๐Ÿคฃ big up you mark once again sir

  4. Great vid guys that is the first time I have seen a socket used in that way, what with the 2 plate system i was thinking how have they spured of the ring etc but ok that makes sense as long as its fused down its the same as pluging a 3 amp fused lamp into a socket i would have loved to have seen the back of the switch just a quick glimpse but did you fill the holes or did the customer do that? thx

    1. We donโ€™t do any filling ๐Ÿ˜‚ if we did the whole ceiling would need replacing ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
      Yeah itโ€™s the same concept really and once the table is there nothing else will be plugged in as it was measured so the table top covers the plugs
      The back of the switch was just the same as any 3g switch, 2 cables in each common, 1 in each l1, then neutrals and earths in 5 way wagos ๐Ÿค™

  5. Nice one Jack hope you get your back sorted before the Christmas belly starts pulling on it ๐Ÿ˜

  6. A very nice and neat job considering the position you were left in via plasterboards and dabbing.I have a question running the 13 amp sockets through a switch, isnt the switch rating lower.I realise the customer wants to only plug lights in but still……..?

    1. You are correct sir, but this is what the customer asked for so this is what we did, they know itโ€™s only for lamps so shouldnโ€™t be a problem, once the table is in front of it nothing will get plugged in anyway
