I should have registered as Mr Knob & Tube, it would have been more on the mark

anywho, some rather unusual K&T parts here, even I don't see many of these….

the backside is embossed with P.E.S. MFG CO. G.1325

They look like the K&T version of bushings to run the separate conductors into an enclosure.

Those are called Federal Bushings, and there arent many left around. I have some made out of phenolic material. Neat find, thanks for sharing.

the two slotted smaller holes were to screw these jems into the wall, the K&T loom otruded from the two larger outside holes. The 2nd pix shows the face, where the two gooves held the K&T (unloomed) in a downward position.

This allowed the K&T exit from inside a wall to what was most likely (to my knowledge) the original wooden wiremould surface run raceway for K&T

I don't think I ever saw those parts and I have worked with a lot of K&T here in NJ. Maybe they didn't use them here or maybe me memory isn't what it used to be.
