I've seen that a few times wall lights wired in to the back of sockets with bell wire [/QUOTE][QUOTE="addjunkie, post:
My father had a shop selling tvs, washers etc, also sold electrical bits and bobs. So this day I was asked to help with some stuff. In came a woman, asking for bell wire. No problem, how much do you want. While makeing small talk it was for her neighbour to wire in wall lights from a socket, because he could easily hide the wire. Apparently hed done it for others in the same block too. I explained to her the correct way and that it should be approved by the landlord (council).
Quite scary really what some folk think is ok.
I heard about a house completely wired in BT telephone wire, doubled or even tripled up, old boy was ex BT engineer, I am sure he had sort of calculated the load etc. BUT phone wire!
