Welcome to ElectriciansForums.net - The American Electrical Advice Forum
Head straight to the main forums to chat by click here:  American Electrical Advice Forum

Have just finished my first days work on site as an apprentice electrician, just on a three month trial at the moment to see how I get on.

Thought I'd see if there was an electrician forum as I'm signed up to every other bloody forum out there :D

Cheers,

Tim

Well today I was just doing the noggins (?) for the cable to hang from and chasing in boxes so no electrical work...but I've never even taken a drill to a wall before so it's all good new experience!

I'm working on a huge new house at St. George's Hill in Weybridge.

As for nicknames...



:D:D

It's a first fix so I guess to be expected - although I did touch some cable today! (Feeding it through)

I'm not signed to any other 'lectrickery forums so I'll take your word on this being the best :D

Today I learntnenend which way round is the correct way to hold a screwdriver...
