Do you mean old .7029 ?

As for the upstairs/downstairs ring, dont think there are any rules against it other than the floor area not exeeding 100m square, however some of the other chaps are more up on regs than me and may know otherwise !

I pass it on my certs (if it tests out ok) but my boss advises me to suggest that a rewire is necessary on the certs.

Yes, 7 strands at .029 inches (i think).

Think, though not 100% that it is actually slightly bigger than 2.5.
