Brian: Gotta' love those old porcelain condulet fittings! I hope you save those guys, as well as that Multibreaker panel. It kinda looks like a Square D or Cutler Hammer with a Colt label on it. This is interesting. The only Colt electrical products I have seen until now are safety switches.

These are neat! Very interesting. I agree with mamills. I think that the "Colt" panel has SquareD breakers in it.
I've never heard of Colt electrical equipment before, but I guess it's not that odd if you consider the General Electric M134 Minigun, M61 "Vulcan" or the WWII "Liberator" pistol, (made by Delco-Remy's [GM] Tailight Division). ...S

I hope I'm not guilty of Threadjacking here (I apologize if I am), but since this thread deals in part with equipment carrying rather uncommon manufacturer names, has anyone ever heard of electrical equipment by the name of "Mongerson's Machine Works"? I saw a nicely preserved 60 amp 3 pole safety switch bearing this name, back stage in a local high school auditorium. I know very little about it, other than the fuses (ordinary cartridge, non-rejection-type) slide into place and are held there with screw clamps, and the actual switch jaws are not visible, being hidden beneath the entire assembly inside the can (not such a great idea, huh...).

Brian: Not yet...I don't have a digital camera. I'm going to be in this auditorium in about three weeks to do a sound job, and I'll try to borrow a camera and take some pics. at that time. If I can figure out how to post them or send them in, I'll try to get a thread started here.
BTW; This switch is abandoned, more or less - juice to the line side, nothing on the load side. The maintenance supervisor is a friend of mine. I'm gonna try to get this little gem into my collection!
