    That WAS the point of linking two different load-centers. Everything connectorish comes with each one for the twelve bucks but either of fuses for one, or circuit-breakers for the other. Task should...

    If I owned a sine plate that handy, present-day?

    I am JUST enough of a hypocrite, I might be tempted.

    So I don't. Own a sine plate.

    Sadly, yes. Whomever was meant to prepare it for shipping. Clearly DID NO SUCH THING! Get more pictures, time dated.

    Call yer Lawster. Or FIND one.

    I'd claim back the full price from the...

    I've used "to the trade" sources in Florida for Donkey's years. Watch for those "online" who have high-volume, decent close-out/clearance, and great shipping arrangements. Then "go ogle" for praise...

    "Drill" not-only..

    Have to admit so much so, my first reaction to facing that challenge is to see whether to make "whatever" in steel or bronze instead!

    A man has got to know his limitations....

    To be fair, they "mattered most" in the earliest days of petroleum extraction and the rather limited refining capability of those earliest days.
