More to the point, a small junction box type thing, preferable weathertight?
What I am hoping to do:
I want to build/get built a simple light fixture for our (covered) deck.
It will be a 3-pin plug, with about a 4 metre cable into a junction/splitter box, which will split 3 ways to 3 bulb sockets, each cable 1-2m from the split. I will put cup hooks or similar in the roof beams of the deck and hang the (fancy arty) bulbs over the hooks. This means that I can take the lights away for winter/bad weather etc.
What I need to find is a nice tidy way of splitting the cable, I could just get three cables run all the way off the 3-pin plug, but that uses a lot more cable, and wont be as practical.
I plan on using corded cable, and the bulbs will be no more than 40-60W each, infact, if I can find the bulbs I'm looking for in 25W I'd be happy.
Anyone have any ideas what I should be looking for? Prefer to get local, but no problems bringing it in from overseas - I have to get the cable imported (like this: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/10m-DARK-BROWN-TWIST-braided-textile-fabric-cord-old-retro-light-cable-/171011483303?pt=AU_Lighting_Fans)
