Here are some photos I took at the project I’m presently on. It’s a renovation of an old firearms manufacturing plant in Hartford, Ct. Most of it was still in use.

As I said in my original post, this equiptment is still in use. We're saving everything we take out, so if there is anyone interested in any of this, please let me know...

p.s.- My original post got sent out under my wife's e-mail, hence the "Debbie" at the end...

Great stuff! Better watch your fingers when grabbing those switch handles though!

Isn't Hartford, CT the home of Hubbell? Is this by any chance Hubbell equipment?

Interesting stuff!

I know a house that has a small subpanel that looks like a miniature version of the last picture. From what I remember it was inside a wooden Cabinet up on the second floor. I wish I had thought to take a picture.

I've seen this style Panelboard in an old building being used as a Cabinetmaking shop. I remember seeing it covered with sawdust too. [Linked Image]

Yes it is the old Colt factory....Colt moved their remaining operations from this factory to West Hartford in '91.
The place is undergoing a 120 million dollar facelift; commercial and residential space....I've got a lot more pics of the place, but didn't want to clutter up the board.....

Great photos!

How would one go about opening/closing some of those switches? Surely not by hand?
