Hi. New member. I joined as I found the forum looking for some electrical help online. In my spare time I rebuild cars and do some auto mechanic work so having a resource to ask electrical questions when I need will be handy. Thanks to anyone who may help me out in the future.
I do volunteer work for a charity: Besom. We get given electrical goods (& other
things) that must be PATted before we can give them to our recipients. Some
of these are giving weird results: I intend to ask advice.
Error! thread title must be > 20 chars! What a bore!
