The last couple of days was spent replacing a simple low power electric spur from the Garage to the main House with a higher powered circuit. We pulled through three twenty five square millimetres fat wires to provide a low resistance connection. It is not directly “plumbed” straight into the main consumer unit in the garage, just a short high powered cable and plugged into an high current round pin socket.

We left plenty of extra wire at the house end then connected them to a small consumer unit which has a main switch and two circuit breakers.
The House now has two main points for mains electricity connections, at both ends of the house, in the Great Room where we will be setting up our work bench, table saw, planer and vacuum system and the other point in the Utility Room to run our domestic equipment plus a reel extension cable ready to go outside when needed.

One of the other jobs we will need to do is to connect our compressed air supply and seal off the various outlets that are waiting for an appropriate socket mounted on them and then we can have the ability to have nail gun capabilities without having to run a hose from the compressor in the garage and across our driveway.
