Hi guys, what's the advantage if any of using a galv adaptable box over plastic? Other than strength, if you use pirana nuts you earth the gland either way? I suppose if you used a metal box you could earth the box for multiple armoured glands save loads of fly leads?

about right. also, where livestock are concerned, galv. boxes withstand stupid animals kicking and biting them better than plastic.

Lol oh right, so would it be acceptable to earth many glands with on fly lead to the box rather than many to each gland or is this bad practice? I normally flylead each one individually

Plastic dappy boxes are a bit flimsy for glanding anything other then baby swa's into IMO, Plus w1hen jointing SWA's I always like to carry on the 'armoured' theme!
