A CONVENIENT HIGH VOLTAGE FUSE BOX.
The accompanying illustration shows a convenient and substantial junction box and motor cut-out. It is built entirely of porcelain and contains an ample fuse chamber. It will accommodate a 5-in. fuse. The fuse is bent around a plug which is thrust into the socket provided for it, and connected into the electrical circuit by means of a quarter turn. The plug can be removed and safely replaced. It is fastened to its support by lag screws or wood screws, which are furnished with the cut-out. It is very conveniently adapted for making proper wire connections, and especially recommended for 500-volt motor and for transformer service. The utility of the device is apparent at once on inspecting the cut, and its simplicity and low price have found it many friends among those who do construction work. Messrs. Pass & Seymour, of Syracuse, who manufacture this article, find the demand for it very brisk. It is particularly well adapted for primary circuits working at pressures as high as 2200 volts.
