  1. Thanks for looking groundzero, will be using it self employed, I did have app on phone, but disappeared. I think, they upgraded, so you need to pay for the update. I did look for apk as well, but no 2019.
  2. hello all. Anyone got a copy of (CITB health, safety and environment test for operatives and specialists 2019 dvd/iso) i had a good look, even index of/ wondered if one of you had a copy to share.
  3. Ok, lol. i believe screwfix is good on returns ๐Ÿ˜ I will dig out my receipt and put in box, ready just in case ๐Ÿ˜ฉ.
  4. hello slim, only ยฃ9.99 from screwfix Screwfix Link
  5. Your welcome, Iโ€™ve used this site, as it can give you a lifetime memberships.
  6. Hard to choose, some vpn donโ€™t work with fire stick, so need to check first. I have nord, hola, but donโ€™t work on fire stick, but maybe can side load. I brought from here: Link
  7. Nice one ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป itโ€™s just a few diy jobs in the house to swap sockets over and switches. I thought instead of doing it with neon screwdriver, I would do it the best and safest way with the meter.
  8. I changed to 600v and got a good result on a mains socket, touching the live and neutral screws. Then testing again when mains was off ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Nice one Daveywavey, I thought I might of had a brand new faulty meter. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Also did try again on switch, but could not get a reading touching screws when on, or trying where cable comes in. I disconnected the light switch, and got a reading with the bare cables.
  9. Yes in uk, yes twin and earth,and did not have switch on when tested. also as you can see I was on 200v as thought for 240v. I use to use one of them light screwdrivers for testing, and was told not reliable, so thought so it the right way with a meter. Thankyou ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป will change to 600v and correct above.
  10. I took of switch completely, and tested and got a better reading. I thought I could connect the probes and touch the Screws to get a reading. My first time use i forgot to take pictures of before and after readings to show. I couldnโ€™t hold the meter and take a picture. just wanted to check I had meter on correct settings.
  11. Ok. meter is brand new, Iโ€™ll test on another socket.
  12. Hello all, need to change kids light switch. I disconnected power from fuse board, and put a meter to connections and was negative. Then changed switch, turned on power, working fine. My question is: when I put the mater back on, it did not stay on a certain voltage, it went from 190 and down, then back to 190. is this right? Or doing something wrong?
  13. Merry Christmas all, Have a good one. letโ€™s all hope next year will be better for everyone. H, merry Christmas to you and family.
  14. H replied to my email: I am going to be doing a short video and putting it up on the modshack.net domain tomorrow, mainly outlining what is going on and when things will be back. Hopefully within the next few weeks but definitely before Christmas. I was hoping to have something up and running last week but sadly things got a little hectic again. If you could let them all know I am doing ok and it WILL be back before Christmas that would be great, also tell them to keep an eye out for the video as it explains things a little better.
