Hello everyone. I know an amp from a volt and a ring from a spur but despite being electrically trained and a background in Electrical Engineering, I’m not an Electrician. So I’ve joined to get opinion, advice and guidance from the experts, to help me with my DIY projects and to do things properly and safely. Thanks in advance for any help given.

I think you are in the right place! Must be a thousand years of expertise on here. As to DIY mhmmm moot point on this forum. Depends how deep down the rabbit hole you want to go. Anyhow welcome and happy fishing.

ElectriciansForums.net (formerly known as ElectriciansForums.co.uk) was setup in April 2006 to provide free electrical advice to both professional and DIY electricians. Whether seeking advice for auto electrics, trying to find electrical installation condition reports (EICR) form downloads, or whether you're here just to talk to other electricians; we've been a first-choice website for tens of thousands of sparkies for well over a decade.
