Something I come across with increasing regularity...

Spur off a JB, but ring (origin) is just stripped (not broken) and cable placed in JB, with spur feed wired accordingly...

So when was this common practice, and do any of you guys still do this?

that was how I learned(learn't?) to do it, 15th.

why make another joint in the cable if you dont need to, more joins more places for faults/problems.

I trained for three years in the early eighties but gave up as the people I worked for wouldn't let me have a proper apprentiship. So I got my qualifications evening classes later in life.

It has been 3 years+ since I went back to college....

My 1 regret in life Is leaving the trade at an early age and in the same context, not returning earlier than I did...

Me to, I did 15 years doing a job that I didn't really enjoy. But you go through life sometimes doing the right thing but usually not.

I used to do it like this when I was a alarm engineer. Like already said, less faults and can do it live (well I did). I just cut cpc to sleeve. Always fun trying to drop JB terminak screw onto the thread while it was live. lol

I still do jb's this way as well. I was taught to cut the earth conductor (as it was known then before the Cpc had been thought up !) just to sleeve it, but i dont, i just slice the sleeve and slip over the cable. It also means more cables can be terminated in the jb.
