I have cut through the cable on my hedge trimmer about 18 inches from the machine. As this appears to be a pretty common problem I am seeking advice on the best way to deal with it. I have read through a couple of old threads on this topic and the advice seems to vary between using a 2 pin connecting block and tape or using a 2 pin connector plug such as this: Masterplug Orange Connector 2-Pin | Screwfix.com Which is the best method? I would prefer the masterplug type as it could be used again and also seems the safer option. But is this the best way? Advice please? I can wire a plug so think I would be okay doing this. I do use a RCD plug and fuse board.
