But is it just wiring a plug or is it likely to be different because it's a foreign cable? would they be different voltages for example? the two pin plug only has two wires, and as far as I remember, the British ones still have three wires...
My dad's an engineer, and he told me that wiring colours and voltage are now standard across the EU. So just cut off the plug (which will be moulded) and wire the two wires as usual into a UK plug. (Brown right, blue left).
I can't remember what continentals do about the earth (third wire), but you probably won't need to know that.
It's a sewing machine, nothing more exciting I'm afraid! Custardo - you're right about the adaptor but the only one I could find in my hovel lovely home was too loose. I know I have another somewhere underamountainofcrap filed away carefully but not sure where and as my organisational skills are unlikely to change I'd like to bypass the hunting for an adaptor problem each time I want to use it!
