Kitchen fitters Eh!

Recommended Posts

Evans Electric

Some are really good but some ............:redcard

 

I noticed again , last week ,  new kitchen , looked fine TBH   but the main water shut off  now sealed up behind units somewhere .   

 

One of the worst examples was the  old Wylex  board,  metering & cut out at low level  sealed up behind the corner unit . Access by open a 600 unit door  , remove pots & pans etc ,  remove shelving ,   crawl inside  base units , lie on belly , extend one arm only , pull fuse  & shuffle out backwards .

There are a couple of kitchen fitters around here who are amazing!.....seriously good and it takes a LOT to impress me!!

 

 

there is another who did my brother in laws ( it is a golfing mate of his) absolute runny 💩 with a bit of vomit mixed in.

he fitted top and bottom trim 'by eye', then fitted slab doors. Nothing lines up, cornice runs out by 10mm over length of cupboards. It's flush with the door at one end and halfway behind door at other end

I found one in a built in wardrobe like that. Push all the clothes to one side, there is a 6 inch square hole cut in the side panel of the wardrobe. Shine a torch in, and about 18" back was a wylex. You could just reach it with one hand to pull a fuse. Absolutely no chance of doing anything else.

I went to a house with a board at the back of a corner unit of the newish kitchen - full arm stretch to work on it, total pita. Funny thing is, the customer was an electrical lecturer at the local college....:shakehead

What's the old saying?

 

Those that can - Do.  Those that can't - Teach.

And those that can't teach become consultants

There are always exceptions to the rule

 

some people may be consultants outside the electrical field

Oh!  This could go pear shaped if we are not carful, but I think we are still ok at the moment. Its like watching a slow-motion action-replay of an own-goal by some high profile football team, just waiting for the ball to roll back over into our own net!

Good job I qualified as an electrician before becoming an instructor.

 

Learning to teach instructors was bloody hard work, so much so it caused me to split with my partner.

There's not enough money in teaching, and yes I can't "do" as much any more because my body won't let me!

Hmm, I'm 54 shortly, and I'm knackered, MH problems, stomach problems, arthritis in my back, hands and knees, spondylosis in my neck. , My body is like one of those houses people rent out, the tenants didn't look after it and now it's falling to pieces! There are lots of things I can't do, however, if I was to run into an attractive blonde 19-year-old in my local, I'm sure I could still do her, lol. the exertion would probably finish me off, but there are a lot worse ways to go.
