    Type C RCB

    If you are in breach of said contract I don’t think that they have to pay out. That’s certainly the case for business policies.

    Type C RCB

    If “electricians” on the Screwfix forum are making recommendations on mixing and matching circuit protection devices and boards then it’s not a good place to get advice. For over 30 years the practice of “mixing and matching” boards and protective devices has been against the product safety...

    Electrical Inspection C1? Really?

    Of what I am able to read (on my phone) those observations are not a C1 unless the cable shows evidence of thermal damage, in which case it would have to be replaced. A lack of coordination would “normally” only attract a C2. I would love to see the BS7671 clause for the lack of ducting on the...

    BAS 500 thrust bearing needed

    In over 30 years of working on machinery of all kinds including wood working machinery, I have never seen a thrust race that is sealed or shielded. By design it’s not possible to do that.

    BAS 500 thrust bearing needed

    Almost certainly neither if it’s a thrust bearing.

    Electrical Inspection C1? Really?

    Post a copy of the EICR suitability redacted for privacy? There are very few things that merit a genuine C1 code. Mainly exposed live parts. If the loop impedance is too high for the fuse to disconnect then that a C2. Scheme rules are such that a C1 cannot be ignored the inspector is compelled...

    Hiab project

    It also must comply with the Supply of Machinery Safety Regulations/Machinery Directive. That’s the law. Unless it’s CE/UKCA marked it cannot legitimately pass a LOLER inspection.

    Jones and Shipman 540P Rebuild

    They aren't good in a dirty environment, but, then again we used to use the same waylube oil for the ballscrews and the slides, and the system was unfiltered, and re-circulating. Some areas were total loss, others weren't, which might be a better description. You might have a problem with...

    Jones and Shipman 540P Rebuild

    Grease + grinding swarf = lapping paste! I’ve seen it too many times. The accuracy of the positioning is going to be dependent on the accuracy of the leadscrew. Can you investigate a ballscrew? As far as scraping the slides go, it’s possible, but not easy, and yes I have done it, and yes it was...

    Remote control NVR

    The NVR on a motor driven piece of equipment is a safety device. It’s required by the product standards used for compliance with safety law.

    Ceiling rose to flush fitting- help needed

    The requirements for insp and testing are within the British Standard, this document is referenced in the Approved Document (P) for compliance with the Building Regulations. The onus is on the person undertaking the work to inspect and test, complying with the requirements of BS 7671. The onus...

    Ceiling rose to flush fitting- help needed

    For information, as the job is completed by the sound of things. “Chock block” connectors “stuffed” in the ceiling void, is not compliant with BS7671. I understand that you are doing this as a DIY job, but, you need to realise that your insurance company will have expectations within the small...

    Question about electrical regs

    I fully agree that it is wrong. The trouble is that you are trying to take on a broken industry. Not enough people within the electrical industry (BS7671 side) want changes, and there are not enough competent operatives in the industry to pick up the pieces. Hence why you are on a hiding to...

    Question about electrical regs

    Not quite true. They only have to be registered for self certification of works. Anyone else needs to go through building control, or, a 3rd party certification scheme.

    Question about electrical regs

    You are entering a minefield. I strongly suggest that you heed what the ex-lawyer has said above, and if you are determined take your own legal counsel on this. To get an expert witness you are looking at circa £1k per day to win this, that would be split if the expert is joint, else each party...

    Question about electrical regs

    Taking each point in turn. Who at Curry’s is stating that the hob cannot be connected? I would challenge their opinion first, and as them what is the reason for them stating this. It could be argued that there is a dedicated cooker circuit at 32A, and that they have not stated that this circuit...

    Question about electrical regs

    The electrical regs for employed parsons is the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 (as amended). BS 7671 is no more than a glorified industry guide. Without knowing more details about the product and the installation it is not possible to state whether the design and construction falls foul of...
