Default low voltage

have an older fusebox in the barn. some recepacles have low voltage. like 70 instead of 120. pulled out the main fuse breaker, the one side of leg. seemed to have some corosion on the screws. tightened them up and it was back up to 120v. only lasted a couple of days and back to around 70. doesn't seem to have any moisture in box. everything else looks ok. any ideas other than a new box? thanks

And why not just change it out with one with breakers? Might cost all of $50.00.
