I've seen these panels before. The ones I have seen are in beautiful oak cabinets from the days when it was a big deal to have electricity and it was proudly displayed.

Since I took the pictures at the IAEI Western Section meeting and was not the contractor for that job, I can't sell it. The NE chapter had the panel next to thier booth. Since it weighs 245 lbs., I know that shipping would be a pain.
It still is a beautiful item. BTW was told the slugs still in the panel were for the neutrals.

Beautiful panel! The craftsmanship in these vintage panels is really outstanding. This appears to be an awful big one, too - It looks like there are 26 switches in there, not counting the one at the top.

Is (was) the large switch at the top used as a main disconnect? I ask because I also see lugs on the busses at the bottom.

KOs were provided for half of the circuits where requested on initial order. Extra KOs were furnished at 10 cents each.


10-4. Boy Howdy! That's fine by me. I hate factory KOs. Countermen that snivel over blank endwalls as a line item on a panelboard-can PO should be decked.

Mike yes the switch at the top is the main disco. Was told that the panel was taken out only because of the remodel work moving the wall it was in. I do not have other details about what replaced it
It's a solid item. I wonder if any panels made today will last that long.

Hey Guys (and Gals, of course):
If you are interested in collecting this sort of vintage equipment, and have the money to spend (regrettably I don't at present), cast an eye on an item I came across today on eBay - No. 1775814249.

Pretty neat

My apologies to Joe if I am out of line in referencing this here.

Too Cool! I love it!

Whatever happened to the pending Nostalgia section? Is it still in the works?
