Square d motor control centers
Square d model 5 and square d Model 6 motor control centers played a part in my favorite job. There was plenty of transformers and lots of square d I line panels but the motor control centers are what got me to the job and everything else fell into place. It was in the mountains of Georgia at an old textile mill that was right on the river. It was hot everywhere else and that job came along and it was almost like working in air conditioning. The people were pleasant to deal with and once we agreed on price gave me a key to the plant. There was a restaurant about two miles from the plant that served food so good that it was all I could do not to gain weight on that job. The best part of the deal was buying the used copper which turned out to be a great deal more than anybody suspected and helped pay for the job.
The verticals of Motor control centers had circuit breakers with them which made them more valuable that ones that are fused. It was nice that there where larger starters in the buckets. Not just a line up of size 1 starters but size 4's and size 3's and size 2's unfortunately no square d size 5 starters but you can't have everything. Once I started showing the owner how much stuff he could remove that ran machines that where no longer there I realized that I had ran into a treasure chest of used electrical. I wish I had one a month like that.
