A plug-in strip using 3 pin outlets, letting you select which circuit you want to load. And other 3 pin Aussie style outlets and plugs from H&H.

reminds me of a time when I plugged in a hand drill and it smoked on me. the receptacle was wired for 240 V not sure why, it was in a kitchen beside the kitchen table.
