OK Here's one for all.

How do i get my distributer out to solder on a lug on my TNS supply for an earth.

I phoned them today- Not intrested.ggrrrrrr- total lack of help.

I don't really want to goto TT as i'm in the middle of a town and shouldn't need to.

Iv'e never had this prob before.....

Any ideas.

strictly speaking,

as far as I know/understand/IMHO

not having an earth is sweet FA to do with DNO, apart from the fact that they can REFUSE to supply you if you dont have one.

earthing arrangements are entirely down to the consumer,

the DNO only supplies an earth out of generosity.
