Does anybody have any comments or literature or publications on the hazards that may be caused by ZINSCO breakers?

Thank You

OK, then try these links, I believe they will provide you with some of the information you need, at the very least the first one gives a specific link to someone who is also an electrical contractor in the Seattle area who made provide you with some "free information" coming from a credible source!

Thank You
