Posted By: Paul in MontrealWhy skim your plasterboard? Just tape and finish the joints.
Posted By: CWattersust offer up the plasterboard and give it a thump roughly where the box is. It will leave marks on the plasterboard to show you where to cut out the hole.
Posted By: Nick ParsonsNot great if you want to go over every surface with a straight-edge, though!
Posted By: barneyDon't put the box flush with the outer face of the board - plasterboard is incombustible and forms a perfect;y acceptable part of the enclosure
Posted By: marktimeNick, you're suggesting glass-fibre scrim, (that the adhesive mesh tape?) in place of paper tape. What made you arrive at that decision? Apologies if slightly OT.
Posted By: Paul in MontrealOver here, you're "supposed" to have the box end up flush with the front of the plasterboard
Posted By: djhPlaster may be incombustible, the same as metal, but it isn't an electrical conductor. So perhaps the difference in regs/common practice regarding boxes is due to some difference in the earthing requirements?
Posted By: djhOr if you have wall-washing lights, presumably?
Posted By: barneyI don't disagree Paul, except insofar as your recepticle design differs from UK pattern 13A sockets - and you also use a differing cable type (romec or similar by code from memory).
Posted By: Paul in MontrealTypically, over here, way more breakers are used than in the UK. My kitchen alone has 10 breakers and I think I have around 35 in total (and the panel can fit 48 single pole devices).
Posted By: djhThat difference is because we have fuses in the plugtops, I think. And ring circuits.
