A wind up I'm sure, but to humour you.
Drop the red switch (main switch) down, this will isolate the whole board.
AS for the mcb you need I haven't got a clue as you've not said what the circuit will be for.

But if you are asking this type of question I'd advise you leave well alone & get a sparks in.

HANG ON!!

He says "how do you isolate the supply to this box"...

You can't, without an isolation switch OUTSIDE the consumer unit.

I think it's for real. I've just read his last two posts which in his world makes him qualified to move onto bigger and better things. icon_eek.gif

lets get the story right then you all can finish having your laugh and move on to some other mug
what i ment to ask was
a friend of mine has just fitted a shower and he has asked me if i can fit a fuse to his fuse box and also what amp fuse should be fitted
i also ment to say how do you isolate the power to the fuse box because i was told that the meb has to remove there main fuse
i am not doing this job for him i was just after a straight answer because he wont listen when i tell him i cant turn the power off to his fuse box
