The problem is that I would buy from Farnell, not the cheapest but good for small quantities, then having to buy bags packaging and spend time packing and bagging up.

Plugging it together in the dark I bridged the terminals with the metal surround of the female part. Blew myself through the loft hatch hole.Grumpy Mike wrote:Well I did wire up my darkroom safe lamp when I was 10. I cut through the twin twisted wire with a pair of scissors when it was still plugged in. Took a good notch out of them.
