I snapped these the other day for some "before and after" pictures that I have been wanting to put together. This was in the basement and you can see where the old 100 amp. service was before some hack upgraded it to 200. I'm 6'2" and had to stand on my tippy toes to reach the main.

well at least now you are kind of forced to use a broomstick or hopefully some other wooden ( read insulator AND "get you the heck out of the way handle") to operate the breakers..

That one gives new meaning to the term "hack job". Wow. I am speechless. Anyone who knows me will agree that's a first for me.

Obviously he was raising the panel up high enough so the romex would not be exposed to damage under 8'.......

Actually, it may have been a good thing. Panel cover was long gone and I'm not sure whether it would open if it were on. Putting them up high keeps the little guys wondering fingers out of them. This home is chocked full of some real "quality" work. About 10' right of this is a flying splice of some 6/3 running to a garage. No box, no tape and he tied them together with small bolts and nuts. They have been real crispy hot, too. I bid moving and replacing the service which is done. Working T&M now fixing this mess. I'll be there awhile.

"OLD Stab Loc's are brown...the red tip ones were the last 'new' from FPE. The replacements (American) are Black with white numbers.
