    Default Early FP?

    Saw this yesterday. I have never seen this name on a panel before. Anyone else seen these?

    FPE used several names over the years. Federal Pioneer (in Canada, I think), Stab-Lok, NoArc, all sorts of different names. Like Bruce said, still pretty much the same design.

    Did Federal Pacific make any panels that do not need replacing?
