Default Re: Work lamp

Agreed re both neon testers and strays, although I often use a neon as a final reassurance check on things I already know are isolated.
It is a little worrying though that you're seeing volts on the metalwork *and* the lamp is intermittent, particularly if it's supposed to be earthed. It's possible that the cable is frayed somewhere, and warrants careful inspection IMHO.
