    I would listen to your instincts on this one.

    Ya it sounded tempting but it's not like the wires don't lead directly into my room

    I have 2 x 600w HPS with ballasts, and two 6 inch extractor fans. I would like to run them from a 4 way extension lead plugged into a single UK 230v 50hertz socket. Is this a safe or will it overload the socket/extension lead? Thanks in advance for any info!

    you've got 1200 watts with the lights. Add the fans. If they are 50 watts a piece you are looking at 1300 watts. divided by the 230 volts you are looking at <6 amps. What else is on the circuit and whats the rating on the circuits breaker/fuse?
    Is the extension rated for 6 amps?

    Hi, hopefully someone can help me hook up my new timing board. I have a 8 gauge wire hooked up to a 40 amp breaker in the panel but I don't know how to hook it up to my relay. Should I get a electrician or is this something I can do myself?

    Heres a pic of the timing board and a close up of the relay



    Also, I wanted to confirm the two wires coming out of the junction box should sandwich my high heat shut off as seen below.
