    My grandpa used to use a slingshot to launch Mint Imperials at squirrels in his garden. He did run a sweet factory so was never short of ammo.

    Thanks for this, I'm doing the research and will test/have it tested if necessary.

    Just wanted to ask, is it ok/a good idea to use a IP66 20AX DP Switch at the house end in order to be able to isolate the socket I put in the shed when not in use? From my understanding I don't need to isolate it at all, but I want to be able to and the above makes more sense than a fused spur in a waterproof housing.

    Thanks, my other half borrowed it for the weekend and it didn't work! Testing at home (with wifi) and still no luck. However a reset by holding down the power for 10sec seemed to do the trick.

    My OG Wahoo doesn't load routes. I can select them on the device and it says loading route, but when I click ROUTE again to see details, it's back to the screen where you can select routes.

    Any ideas? New update messed it up?

    From what I can see, the route posted doesn't seem to do that, bypasses Leytonstone and comes off the A12 at the Green Man Interchange.

    To give @hugo7 clarity, it's also because fresh plaster soaks up a lot of moisture. If you didn't start with diluted paint, the moisture would be soaked up and the remaining paint would bubble and flake off over time.

    Great, thanks. I'll probably do it 'properly' myself then. Means I can put some sockets in the shed as well.

    I ran a 2.5mm SWA cable down the side of my garden before a patio was built, it runs under gravel round the side so could be removed if necessary.

    Initially I was just going to put a 16amp connector at either end and use a jumper and something like this at the other end to connect it to the current outdoor plug. The outdoor plug is on one of two 32amp RCDs that serve the kitchen. I will be plugging in a flymo and probably outdoor lighting in the future.

    Alternatively was going to put a fused spur off the existing 13amp outlet and hard wire the cable in. Would this be notifiable because it is external, or is it fine because it is an existing circuit?

    I think I found places that sell them in custom sizes. I used ProBase recently, not from that site, but they sell individual ones. Cut them to size along the angled fence. They are 50x50cm.

    That said, I would probably just use a paving slab or two. Neater and more solid for something that probably doesn't need much support.

    +1 Very few punctures with plenty of use with GK SK tubed for me, I liked them a lot. 32mm back and 35mm front was the biggest I was happy with on the Strael2 although technically you could fit bigger the clearance was not enough for comfort.
