    I once went down an engine room to find on the distribution panel the electrician had used a sweeping broom to jam in a persistently falling out breaker. The brush head on the breaker and the other end of the shaft tight up on the bulkhead.
    I did a 'brush off the electrical problems' and a 'clean sweep of all electrical faults' joke.
    I was rather impolitely asked to leave the engine room. :heyhey:

    I once did a job for someone who had got confused when wiring up an extension lead - he had got sockets on both ends.

    Unfortunately, it was also still not long enough.

    So he made another lead to extend it.

    This lead had a plug on each end, so you plugged it in to the extension, then plugged the other end into the supply.

    All very well if you did/undid it in the right order.


    I swapped a plug from one lead with a socket from the other, which he thought was a really clever move...
