mxslick: I guess it wouldn't be quite so bad if it was a fuse pullout. Actually, it's an old Cutler-Hammer "Multibreaker"-style circuit breaker, probably 100 amp. I recently found one like this on eBay and purchased it for my collection. Silly thing, though, the one I bought had been installed INSIDE a building
. From exposure to the elements, I would think that the breaker contacts are getting pretty tired by now.
It kinda looks like the temp rect. has been "temporarily" installed for quite some time.
