CCU & 10mm - use a deep box (35 or 47mm) and feed from both sides of terminals. Yes its tight, but it can be done.
Just be prepared to sweat and swear a lot!

meant cooker outlet not cooker control unit.

2 10mms into mcooker control unit should be okj as long as you have deep box but 2 10mm's into cooker outlet would be bit tight I imagine Undecided

Now THAT TT is very sensible thinking me old mate!!

I think a massive round and brown JB stuck on the kitchen wall surrounded by nice tiles may not go down to well but the idea of using a cooker outlet plate - very civilised indeed. Thanks for that.

For future reference - I've just bought 3 white 60A 3 terminal J/Bs from TLC - Just right for joining big sizes of T+E. - Failing this, you could use a cooker connection unit - one gang 3 terminal. Instead of connecting flex to run outside to the cooker,just join the T+E inside. You use it on a 1 gang metal box and tile round it.

True, true and errr .... true Scotspark.

Probably find out its only an electric oven which can be plugged in using a 13 amp plug!

I would probably do the same rabbit but I doubt tony will have access to a 10mm ratchet crimper and heatshrink sleeving. Undecided

also why wire a cooker in 10mm?

I have never seen one yet that draws more load than a 6mm can safely handle domestically Kiss

Interestingly I was over at a ladies house today, invied over to quote for hre new kitchen electrics. Its  afalt with concrete ceiling as well with concrete floors. There will be a need to extend cooker cable (10mm) about 1 metre. As far as I am concerned I have few choices, the cable cannot be pulled, theer is no access to cable above within concrete ceiling, no access to space abve at all.

Choices are ;

(a) a junction box on the wall exposed, that wil lok really nice in the new kitchen (not!), or

(b) crimp extension test and heat shrink sleeve over each joint. Test again, insert junction into Choxbox and fit into cavity where old cooker unit was and plaster it up then it will be tiled over. If its against the regs so what, the regs would have us make peoples houses look like battleships!

Job done, one happy customer and should it ever go wrong in the future then to me thats no different to any other cable break problem.

hope this helps tony

doubt you will have crimps or a crimper so best to join it in the original box with terminal block and put a blank plater over it 8)

You guys certainly have different views! Not sure where we are with this but in answer to the cable type, it is a single 2 core + Earth.

What is involved with this splicing?

(Revert) timing SS? A Crimp is not a JB and is not subject to inspection (that's a question SS)?
