I acquired the armoured cable with the garage when me and my mate took it down and my brother brought it home on his Bedford CF milk float (and it didn't break down once). I dug the trench and buried it, connected it up in the garage, wired the socket ring main and the lights then got an Electrician mate to check it all, and connect it into the consumer unit in the house. It's stood the test of time anyway.Same with my setup then, mine was old cartridge fuse board with lighting and socket circuits fed from the house consumer unit via armoured cable buried in the ground. Upgraded that with a new board at the garage end with RCD trips lighting, sockets and lift socket. As to lighting still got 3 x 6ft twin tubes I liberated from work about 25 years ago when we had new office lighting installed. Have run out of spare tubes now so might have to look at upgrading them in the future.
Benny is absolutely loppy Roy, I will get him a wash this week, after the Oil burner obvs. Wood dust is my problem lately, especially using any MDF. It's like Talcum powder it goes everywhere. My shop vacc. does a good job but not perfect.Looking forward to getting up there as soon as covid lets us, poor old coupe had to sit outside today as I tried to sort out the rubbish in my garage and sweep 2.5yrs of concrete dust Out. Floor is dustless now and the coupe has a new coat cos I didn’t park it for enough away. All the rubbish collected from the tidy up somehow found its way back in. Oh well at least the car got another wash this week. Ugh.
