It's certainly great to see a few Non-US pictures popping up in here.
Keep it up, you can either send them to Bill, Electure, or me.
When ever I see one of them old MEM Fuse-switch units, it usually means re-wire time.
We had a 3-pole unit over here at one stage that caused all sorts of problems, it was used out in the country.
It was designed to supply 2 phase 230V ranges.
One guy here was nearly burned severely when he plugged his razor into a socket that was fed from a range that had one of these feeding it.
Apparently, the guy that owned the house prior to him, had looped a plug off of the FS unit but had used the 2 phases (400V) and the neutral as the Earth.
Guy plugged his Double Insulated razor in and (I don't need to explain the rest do I?)
Going by the pictures Gideon, where is the cable protection where the cable enter the Fuse-Switch unit?.
Having Basic Insulation showing (the wires themselves, as opposed to the cable sheathing) on a cable outside of a fitting or Switch-board is an Offence (Violation) here.
Also some clips on the cables above the whole thing wouldn't go amiss, as well as the Meter Tails.
What's with that wire leaving the bottom of the FS unit?, is it missing a bit of Insulation, where it goes around the side of the meter below.
Not a good piece of work at all!.
