The above assumes new copper washers, of course. I've re-used copper washers in the past, and normally regretted it later. You could always anneal and re-use them but for what they cost I really don't think it's worth it. Even then I doubt if an annealed washer is as good as a new one.

Hand tight with a spanner only. That's more than enough to seal them.

The Bigg Redd parcel arrived this morning and everything looks spot on. The finish on the pistons is exemplary, replacements for all rubber parts which can potentially degrade or split are included in the kit and they even include a sachet of silicone grease for assembly. Can't fault it.

Hi Eric

I am going to investigate further tomorrow, as you say hard to know which internal part of the steering column has a good connection to the external world.

Thanks for the suggestion

Peter

I'd hope so! I also have 2 trickle chargers permanently plugged in, and of course the amp/receiver so it does creep up.

Link is great and good to know such a gadget exists.

Sounds like time for big self tapping screw into the mount for the pedal box/ steering column connected to the earth wire for the column stalks. Remember painted things bolted to painted things do not conduct. In fact plated things bolted to painted things do not provide an earth return. Non PS Beta's usually have an earth tag on the rack shock absorber this is intended to provide an earth return through the column which is an interesting idea given paint and grease along the way.

I hope this is of some help.

Hi

I should have searched for an answer to this first.... sorry to waste your time.

This thread explains well what to look for.

Hi John

This one is rated to 16A. I would have thought that would be plenty of head room for a workbench given you would normally be using one piece of kit at a time?

Afternoon all, when I kitted out the garage many moons ago I put a fused spur to the workbench and a big on/off switch mounted in the workbench. This in turn energised a couple of double sockets and a few hard wired devices such as bench grinder. The idea was I could hit 1 "kill" switch and the whole bench goes dead

Roll forward a few years and I'd like to replace the big on/off with a "No Volt Release" switch. They seem to be rated at 10A so energising a few sockets might be pushing it a bit. Chance of running over 10A is miniscule, but the whole point is safety. Not against buying more than 1, but any advice on higher rated switches?
