In Webster's dictionary, a picture of this might appear next to the word "Panelboard". [Linked Image]

I hope somebody's kidding with this thing...It kinda conjures up thoughts of what knob and tube wiring might look like without the knobs or tubes... [Linked Image]

Sorry, but they weren't kidding. It was in place and working in an illegal installation where someone had made a multi-family dwelling out of a single family.

It's been said before on this forum "The trouble with electricity is........ it nearly always works"

This reminds me of when my girls were young. At their birthday or christmas they would open their presents, and keep the box and throw away the gift.

For the first time ever, I think I'm at a total loss for words.
If George hadn't posted this I would think it was a staged picture.

Shouldn't that be "on it"?. [Linked Image]
I suppose it saves on knock-outs and glands.
How on earth would you ground a panel like this?. [Linked Image]

I just know you have a different definition of gland than we do in the U.S.

What is it?
