These are a few more of what I found in my Girlfriends "new" place... Old panel is a "Trumbull" with NO main disconnect... The new one is the infamous Federal WITH Square-D main.
"This is also what I found in the basement.. Those flying splices from cabtire to speaker wire.. all that is ER WAS 120 V for lights... That has been removed.. Funny thing though thats next on my list to do is that old romex you see spliced with just tape in one of those pictures.. I have found another 3 like that so far!"
I am referringto the white receptacle andt the plug inserted into it. It just seems a little unfamiliar to me. It could just be the way its packaged. It almost looks like a European plug and receptacle. It seems too small to be a 14-30, could be wrong though. Also, I have never seen a 14-30 or 14-50 in white, almost always black or brown.

Ian: yes that is a nema " 14-30" that serves the dryer in this case, the connecter you see is actually a missing K/O that got plugged.. you will notice at the top of that box the romex is not installed into the connector properly. Just a note those "new" dryer and stove plugs are a pain to work with, the mounting screws tend to slip out of the 'keyway" that retains the receptacle to the box sometimes... Thety are made by Leviton and come in black and white.. But really who cares its normally behind a stove or dryer anyway, and if you do see it in a laundry room, who really cares anyway right?
Pauluk: That receptacle is mounted on a 4 11/16" box
Hahahah you know what I do not actually know what that LB is made of! I will be checking tonight for sure! If you think thats bad you should see the other end where it goes out into the A/C unit, and the tail of 10/2 coming out of it and into a 50A welder receptacle in a non weatherproof enclosure under the deck! ( originally that circuit had a 40 amp breaker on it as well!)
