Winner, Name that Ware February 2019

The Ware for February 2019 is the old circuit breaker on my flat. It’s a classic, perhaps from the 70’s or earlier; the outer case is so weather-beaten, none of the markings are legible except for the rated capacity (40A). The breaker had been getting progressively more fussy, tripping at random times of the day, so it was time for it to go and get replaced with a new one. It’s definitely annoying to have your power go out at random intervals once every couple weeks. Since it was going into the bin, I figured I’d take it apart and see what I could learn from it. Gratz to phantom deadline for guessing it very quickly (again), email me if you’d like to collect another prize!
