Product description

This second edition of Workshop Electrics has been completely revised and updated to bring it in line with the latest advances in technology and to fully conform with BS7671 (17th edition of wiring regulations). A quarter of the illustrations are also new. The book deals with electricity in the workshop and includes everything from fitting a 13amp plug to wiring up a new workshop building. Safety, a key issue is covered as well as inspection and testing. Starting with the planning necessary before electrical installation commences, the book then deals with the fusing, equipment, lighting, fixtures, fittings and wiring for 230-volt mains electricity. Further chapters cover outside workshops, three-phase supplies and a range of low-voltage equipment. Finally there is a glossary, a list of useful addresses and an index.

Author information

Alex Weiss has been aeromodelling for half a century and has built more than fifty radio-controlled models of which 28 were original designs and 14 were published in RCM&E or Radio Modeller magazines. As well as monoplanes and a biplane, the list includes an autogyro, canards and deltas. He has also written magazine articles on subjects as diverse as four stroke engines and flutter. The author first went solo in a Chipmunk with his University Air Squadron at Tangmere and his early adult life was spent as an RAF pilot, flying Jet Provosts, Vampires and Hunters, including three years as a qualified flying instructor. Much of his professional experience has been dedicated to the complex subject of teaching people to fly radio controlled models. Jon Barden, a College Lecturer in Electrical Installations, has over 20 years experience in training staff in electrical and mechanical engineering. He has also been involved with the training and assessment of students on City and Guilds courses.
