This is in a packing company. The owner needed some persuasion to relocate this outlet

Is this outlet inside a box that's usually filled with styrofoam peanuts?

C a heat gun
I know packers use heat guns to shrink packing matterials and stuff

Just like a hair drier with a stronger heating element and uses the same amount of power to around 14 Amps

Theres always enough room in the junction box.You just need a bigger hammer

So the answer would be "none of the above"...since you failed to provide a picture of the gang-box ?....since that is all that was truely plugged into the wall if you had stated "guess what was powered by this outlet"....the pictures would have been accurate minus the gang-box..DETAILS, DETAILS DETAILS....I LOOK FOR DETAILS AND EXPECT BETTER FROM OUR FORUM MEMBERS.....just kidding....i have not had my Prozak today.....nice find for real !!!!

...Despite all my RAGE,
I am still just a Rat in a CAGE !!!!....

FWIW: When I worked at a NRTL doing fire tests, we had a special term for styrofoam: Rocket Fuel. That's what it burns like.
