Jumpers from one breaker to another appeared to be welded or even glued on. I hope someone has seen this and it is made that way. Comments needed.

That's one version of a split bus panel.

Did you treat that as service equipment, i.e., no more than 6 breakers to remove power, neutrals bonded to ground, etc.?

I guess I should add ... not that it matters, it's an FPE after all ... :D

Thus it needs to be replaced. :cool:

Eric - The first time I saw one of those I wasn't sure what it was, until I posted the exact same question on this board.
