did anything go bang when you did that, freddo?

start a new thread on step by step repair of MICC
No these are fire alarm cables.

We called out the fire alarm company who have the maintenance contract for this system, but the chap they sent out had never worked with MICC before so I had to do something to get it going again while they send someone else out tomorrow to rewire the damaged bits. My MI tools are at home so had to strip it with side cutters in the traditional way.

I do secretly like working with MI, the last repair I did involved silver soldering a patch over a nicked sheath.
i just though, orange sheath it would be power circuits
All the wiring here is all over the place, the cables are not near anything or in any zone, not that that maters with MI. Here is some conduit from the same place, was buried in the wall. Twin cables in one end singles out the other, inline crimps inside the conduit.

And why bother un-plugging the Klik plug in ceiling rose when you can tape up the end of the live flex and stuff it in the void.
