This is why i tend to keep every MCB that i remove......

I get sick of the manufacturers changing config all the time.

Wylex were the worst ( never mind the dodgy MCBs that caused plastic DBs to burst into flames and lead in part to AMD3 changes) when they suddenly ditched the HB boards and breakers. I cannot speak for the rest of the country ( unlike LFB) but around here there were 1000s of them....every office block, Factory etc. which was a bit odd as Dorman Smith was only in the next town

Took out an old cream BICC 1361 board yesterday, the metal one with the separate isolator in a box below it

Saved the carriers and fuses.....all the 5A carriers had 13A 1362s in them!, all the 15s had wire wrapped around the pins.....4/5 turns on each 30s were ok

Will put in the drawer...just in case, as I know a couple of places that still have the boards.yes, I know they need changing

I've had to ween myself off doing that sort of thing Kerch ..... the  Ah  this will come in useful one day syndrome ..... just binned a load of rewirable fuse carriers like Bill No. 4's  etc  . 

 

They actually came in useful about 25 years ago ....City Hospital needed some for an old board that couldn't be shut down  & updated until the dept. was moved for refurbing , so we were able re- fill it with some Bill  10A fuses as a temporary measure.

 

These days I still remove certain stuff ....  think this may come in sometime ...then talk myself out  of it and bin it .

I can imagine what you muttered under your breath when you saw that mess and the customer was asking for a "new fuse box"

Nah, cartridge fuse version. A bit like the Pullcap fuses. No screws in holder, no screws in carrier. Pull fuse to quickly and....."good morning Vicar"

Pics later

And just noticed when putting carrier rail back in the workshop that the fuses are in fact PULLCAP...never knew that was a BICC name.......obviously there will be a zero to hero along shortly who knew this all along

Zero to hero......meaning suddenly came from nowhere, with no experience and yet knows it all

Just realised it is not BICC.....but the earlier incarnation of BI Callendar

Just clarifying
