Trying to adapt a full conduit system will never be a great outcome, Del can only do his best with it.
Add ons with T&E is trouble, those boxes should be bushed to the conduit impossible to do with slip tube.

Lets not forget not every job has a massive budget to make significant changes , some jobs the customer only wants to lay out the bare minimum money possible

Del does of lot of HMOs and Rentals which again landlords only prepared to pay for what work is 'absolutely necessary'

Stopped watching him and CJR. I don’t think showing bad and or dangerous practice to the public enhances our trade at all.
I never see CJR doing anything dangerous. I actually asked on here once for people to point me to his 'dangerous' or 'crap' work and nobody could (aside from that SWA he did..)

From what i've seen he does good work.

Delroy on the other hand, i think he's fairly poor. Anyone who glues trunking onto new expensive tiles and then no-nails' on a shaver socket next to a sink instead of simply cutting out a full tile and then putting it back and using plugs to fix the box........just no.

The obvious one that springs to mind was him taking down a wall and then jointing cables in a wago box and ----ing it up into the ceiling and calling it MF. The materials and method he used did not constitute a MF junction box. I politely noted it on his comments and he removed the comment 😅

I remember the one where he was sorting some dodgy sockets under kitchen cupboards. He routed the cables around the cupboards and up the wall completely out of any prescribed zones and called it a good job.

Yeah right
Haha yes i remember that was one of the first i saw, quickly followed by the one where he made an absolute c*** of a bathroom shaver socket.

Seems a decent fella but i wouldn't copy any of his methods.
Best one IMO is when he install an exterior socket from a kitchen socket without first finding out if the socket he spurred from was a spur already, certainly looked like a spur to me. Like you say seems a decent Guy but some of his installs leave a lot to be desired.

Didn't he give a 16mm main earth a haircut to fit it in a consumer unit MET? I'm not a fan. Clickbaity titles and lots of running commentary criticising others, whilst seemingly being a bit ropey on some things himself. None of us are perfect but if you're going for the celebrity route you really have to cross all the t's and dot all the i's to avoid criticism.
