The three "stacked" molded-case breakers in the top pic look special. \:\/ The wire-bending space looks just right for 22AWG.

WOW, True 'wire' ties!

The three stack box is truly special... Looks like a 'temporary' setup that grew out of control. Is this thing growing receptacles along the left hand side? It appears to be a 110/220v outlet strip along with a convienent place to double lug an extra cord when the cover is removed.

Creative engineering, fun and entertaining!

I like the wire color change from line to load side...kind of lends an artistic flair to the work.
