    You stated "he gets a reading of 35v at the power point instead of 240v." Now, between which "conductors" and with what equipment did he get any such "reading". He should have measured the Voltage between the Line and Neutral conductors (240 V) Line and Earth conductors (240 V) Neutral and Earth conductors (Zero V - or near to that.) He should have done this with a "Low Impedance" meter - NOT with a "High Impedance" digital Volt-Meter.

    Well. They are "regulations" - NOT "LAWS". You "can" do anything of which you are able. Weather you "may" do any such thing depends upon the "laws" and "regulations" of the country concerned. If the "regulations" allow any "qualified" person to do any such thing, the only thing in contest is the legitimacy of the "qualifications" required.

    What a pity it is that you do not live in New Zealand, where you would be able to download the "NEW ZEALANDELECTRICAL CODE OF PRACTICE FOR HOMEOWNER/OCCUPIER’Sn ELECTRICAL WIRING WORK IN DOMESTIC INSTALLATIONS" to show you how you may do the work yourself in that country, where the Electrical Regulations are virtually the same as those which pertain in Australia, except in so far as who is "able" to perform such installations ? (Referencing NZECP 51:2004 may get you there more quickly.) ...

    Whitey66 has given an explanation of how a "gas discharge" tube operates - although I do not think that anything operating at around 15,000 to 20,000 volts, even at "low amperage" could be considered as being "safe". The term "Neon" is often misused for any type of "gas discharge" lamp and a NEON lamp ALWAYS glows "neon" Orange. Any other colour is NOT "neon" and most Gas Discharge lamps are NOW actually "fluorescent" lamps, with the gas being mercury vapour "glowing" in ultra-violet and...

    Unless you wish to operate "High Powered" electrical machinery, which "requires" a three phase (rotating field) supply, the supply of a "second" (or even "third") phase is only for the "benefit" of the electrical supply authority - to assist in "balancing" THEIR loads. Distribution wise, it is better for them to supply more than ONE "normal" 64 A supply. rather than a single 128 A (or greater) supply.

    Concerning this "discussion", it may be interesting to view https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_q-xnYRugQ - from 13:15 , in particular. Of course, the "presenter" concerned is here discussing the "North American" situation. However, in Australia and New Zealand, all "Power Boards" are now required to have a 10 A "overload" cut-out. While there may be an "argument' concerning the possibly low capacity of many "leads" associated with such devices sold in Australia and "rated" at 10...
