I'm trying to get some RCBO's off e-bay but Protek ones are a little rare! The mcb's aren't a problem really and are only about

Hi

I have had the same problem locating protek rcbo's I have just found out today that the protek mcb is identical to one from city electrical's own company MCG. So I'm going to try one in a Protek board on Friday. They look identical even down to the printing on the front.

Hope this helps..

Hello and welcome :D

Mr Sworld is a notoriously slow worker and he's unlikely to have completed this job from 18 months ago yet. Good job it wasn't Sandra 'lightning' Evans - Heshe would have been done, well 18 months ago.

:D

hi Sworld

I think the proteus boards and MCB's are very similar and may fit.

Wow! This thread got resurrected from the graveyard!

I'm such a slow worker that I replaced the Protek board with a Wylex. Argued with the G.F. lots, split up and now we're selling the house!

Ohhh... I knew I should of got the contract in with the deadline!
