looks like the old fashioned factory in house maintenance specials. I hope somebody did something/anything about this.

Kid,

5 or 6 down on the left appears to be a factory breaker tie. The proper way to do what the nail is attempting

John,
Actually I did see an 84. It was in new construction.
They ended up putting two circuits on each breaker. The lights in the owners office and the vending machines shared a breaker and kept tripping.
The panel was single phase 120 / 240 volt supplied from a three phase 120 / 240 volt service. The prints showed a transformer and the contractor actually charged the customer for it.
Low bidders and cheap customers make life interesting.
