    Recessed light cover - where to buy?

    I have a recessed light over a shower with a 4” glass cover. I broke the glass cover by dropping it :(. Are you able to buy a replacement cover or do you need to buy the entire metal housing and glass that comes with it? I don’t see this at Home Depot or Lowe’s without buying the whole thing...

    Were these breakers tampered with?

    Over the holiday period my partner returned home to her apartment with no power. None of the internal breakers in the consumer unit had tripped and so she was unsure what to do. She called an electrician who took the cover off the consumer unit and then showed her these singed breakers across...

    Where is it acceptable to run mini trunking?

    Is it acceptable to run mini trunking as shown in the pic? To my mind it would be safer (and slightly less ugly) to have a drop from each socket and then run it along the top of the skirting. I would be concerned about the trunking coming loose and being more likely to suffer mechanical...

    Scenario... 2 x switched fused spurs located in a shower room. They are 610mm from side of shower, so outside zones. However, they could still get water on them from the shower so I don't feel they are suitable for the location. I can't find a reg for this though. is there one? I realise...

    where can I buy this kind of fuse

    This fuse link belongs to a Mercedes Benz. I have soldered the filament of the 40 amps fuse and I do not know if it works. The dealer does not have it and want to sell me the whole module. Are there ways I can go around it?

    I am wiring 2 outlets in the ceiling to control 2 plug-in florescent shop lights in my garage. The 3 ways are at each side of the garage at the 2 entry doors. The way I have it wired right now, both lights come on at either switch but turn off if either is unplugged. I would like both outlets...

    Where to buy bright daylight LED ceiling light like those in Spain

    I live in the UK but really admire some of the interior lighting in Spanish houses etc. In particular nice bright LED panels often found on kitchen ceilings. Not marvellous aesthetically, but they give a really useful, bright light. I can't seem to find anything resembling that online here...

    I'm moving over to LED. Where is the most effective sales outlet?

    I bought a single LED bulb today and was suppressed at the cost. As I'm intending to move over to LED which means changing all the bulbs in the house I'm looking for the best place to buy from and that means service not just price.

    Trunking mess - where to start!

    It's not that often I stare stupidly at something for 5 minutes and can't work out where to start, but.... The horizontal and lower vertical trunking aren't actually connected together or bonded. The upper vertical is cable tied to some SWA and flaps in the wind. Singles are nicely tensioned...

    Hi, I have these Omron BF511 scales which notoriously develop a battery drain problem. Normally they are supposed to last a year but suddenly they start draining a set of 4 AA batteries within a day. I took it apart to see if it has suffered from water damage. And indeed it had. The water...
