Discuss 14th Edition Regs Book in the Electrical Wiring, Theories and Regulations area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hi, I am new to this forum and hoping for some advice. Does anyone know if it's possible to get your hands on an old regs book, 14th edition prior to metric conversion. Maybe a PDF download somewhere if a physical copy is out of the question.

I work for a large organisation doing condition reports and there is plenty of imperial MICC cable still around. I need the data for current carrying capacity and effective cpc cross sectional area. I have noticed the glands have a letter followed by a three digit number which I think is representative of a fraction of an inch. No idea what the letter represents if anything. For example A558 is a four core distribution circuit recently found and it looks like 4H10. I am guessing all these tables lie buried in a 14th edition regs book. Any help would be appreciated.

Possible you can't being a new member. I have tables with the conversions which I can email you as I can't seem to upload it. If you can't pm just say.

It is but he has imperial size cables and is looking for equivalents. I have conversion tables but he seems to have disappeared.
 
Yes, I binned a 15th Edition last year, I must have had a relapse. So been searching for a 15th. Go 1 now. I binned the Green 15th, I’m a dead head. It has spurned me on to search eBay.
My punishment was to find electrical books. I now have more Electrical Books than most libraries. And I’ve been looking through them. I have learned a lot more now than when I was an apprentice.

Hi guys, sorry I don't get much free time, thank you so much for your replies.
I don't know how to send private messages on here, can't see a button or anything. But yeah would love your tables, not just for that cable but in future too
