Looked at a job today in an old house. Customer want to do away with the standard white rose and pendant and for something more in keeping with the house.

I've seen old style switches advertised before but can't for the life of me remember.

Anyone else fitted these before?

I've got this in my front room.
It's copper and I earthed it with a wee ring crimp & a 3 or 4 mil nut and bolt.

nice. as long as you've got a good fixing, we could lynch 3 plumbers simultaneously off that.

I think it's just pine, but I gave it 3 or 4 coats of French polish when I refitted it. Gives light coloured woods a beautiful colour, in my eyes anyway!

The copper could do with a Brassoing!

What, No asbestos red and black flex? Half assed job if you ask me

Would like to see the price for a modern accurate reproduction of those big brass socket outlets :freak:


Edit: Just looked at some of those sites selling the reproduction/ old style switches etc. and the cooker/ shower ones still have red switches. I can't be the only one that hates manufactures doing that?
