When I try jobs like this, I include a 240v 100w incandescent in the lead. If
the light comes on brightly, I have a fault.
Anyone keen to just confirm my findings ? No power required.
Quote from the web.
This is sounding a bit more serious than I thought. I have lost count of the
number of times I have had 240V shock over the years.
We used to use it as a bravery test to be in my gang at primary school and I
once tried to cauterise a cut using the flex from a lamp with the lamp cut off
and the two wires held close together over the cut. I should point out that I
was a little pissed at the time and had just knocked over and smashed my mums
