Default Re: Mains plug restoration

When it comes to doing PAT testing on anything, it's hard to say whether old plugs need to be replaced or not, it's usually based on risk factors such as whether the plug is used frequently or left plugged in all the time with minimal chances of unplugging it (behind furniture for example), it becomes a case of each engineer to their own by then.
I find it strange how plugs had to have sleeves in the 80's yet it still was not mandatory till about 1993 for plugs to be fitted to stuff, I am only young but can remember certain things being bought with prepared wires only.
