Wiring Line Switches
Haven't had a chance to hang it yet but the bare Edison bulb is going to look mighty fine hanging in the corner of the room, providing some evening ambient light.
Slightly different wiring setup from the lesson but same basic principles. Hot and neutral wires cut and connected to opposing connectors. Ground wire also cut and connected to the side of switch.
The wire colours are a little different here in Oz - red or brown for hot, black or blue for neutral, and green & yellow for ground. After reading up on the differences this lesson proved very useful.
