Default Re: Vintage Radio and Phonograph cutter schematic

All wall sockets should be wired the same unless someone has wired them incorrectly, in the UK looking at the wall socket the Live is on the right and the Neutral is on the left if they have been wired correctly.

With the electricity supply I have here the Neutral is connected to an Earth mat buried in the ground back at the pole that the electricity distributors supply transformer is mounted on and at various points between there and the house, before the distributors Neutral connects to the electricity meter at the house it's connected to the main Earthing conductor that's connected to the consumer unit and from there via the various Earthing conductors to all the mains outlets.
