We were doing some industrial work ( in an old building and i found an old panel hidden away behind some boxes, the tag said "Trumble Electric Manufacturing Co." and the breakers had a T with a circle around it...anyways has anyone heard of this company? any info on it? btw, this panel was UL listed, it has the red ul sticker on it.

also, has anyone heard of ITC?

sorry i did not have my digital camera with me

We have quite a few Trumble fused disoconnects in many of our Browning EOT cranes at my mill. I think they were installed around the forties or fifties, long before I was there.

I have seen and worked with Trumble breakers before. I believe that they are now obsolete and you might be able to get T&B breakers that are UL listed for replacements.
