I wouldn’t worry about any 4 way WAGOs.... that particular thread started off with a picture of live, neutral and earth bunged into a 3 way and the op wondering why his lights don’t work.

nah, i want something 500cc. or above.
A mate of mine had a big bike, think it was 750cc or so, but then when it toppled one day he could not right it on his own. Oh how we laughed :)
Post automatically merged:

I have huge box of 'em...but not 4-way...I just pigtail if i need more ways!
I find it a shame that the 8-way are only for the solid conductors (push-in) as there are a few times when that is useful and would be handy in clip style for stranded conductors.
 
As title what have you done or learnt/changed during lockdown

Have you racked the van, looked at different disciplines or learnt a new skill?
That we have a lot of stuff to get rid of on Gumtree

it will take a month for any plaster manufacturs full swing to be made and sent out ,the housing complex's will be the first port of call.
That sounds optimistic a couple of plasterers I know seem to think it will be late August or even into September before the merchants get plaster back in stock

Well the Oil Prices have taken a nose dive and 3 offshore platforms got the plug, quite literally. So a certain American Oil & Gas company decided to cut 85% of its labour. So while on stand down I decided to start my own company. Although, here in the not so lucky country you have to jump through numerous hurdles to obtain your Contractors licence. And that’s what I’ll be doing this week. Going over Regs.... more Regs.... and try complete my website.

I have learned that I need to be more specific. 4-way Wagos exist as do 6 and 8 way, but baddegg was right , I was thinking of lever ones.
The 8-way can be used as push-in if you ferrule the stranded cables...which is a faff, tbh, but as I have nowt else to do I have been brushing up on my ferrules and RJ45 terminations...and i have also been practising my other DIY skills, so have new wine racks, and they look good...good enough to drink!
I wouldn't recommend ferrules in push-in Wagos, btw...my crimpers don't give the right shape...ok for comms, but not as good as jellies
 
I spent hours and hours watching and learning how to test and now at a stage of able to test but always that little doubt and would be great to spend an hour or so with someone to confirm I'm doing things correctly but cant find anyone 🙄.
Other than that finally cleared my garage after 20yrs and 6 tip runs, lots of decorating and quenetic lighting to garden and impressed with performance etc, and just endless jobs around the house and garden oh and whole new brake lines to van so quite productive 👍

Did you make that light fitting, Tel...or is it early Ikea?
 
Tels latest lighting install doesn't look much safer.
