    All the breakers we can see in the other thread are 20 amp. all the wires in this picture are 14 ga. so anything that adds to the draw on this or these circuits could be very dangerous as the wires are not properly protected.

    Nealtw: Heads up. It caught me too. Take a closer look at the breakers. The indicator "ON" printed side-ways to the left of the handle looks like "20" but then look on the left side of the breaker handle closely, there are 15 and 20 amp breakers.

    He's probably not familiar with Bulldog Push-o-Matic breakers.

    They were widely used in s cal, have since been purchased and redesigned by SIEMENS.

    The are a real PITA when there was no main and the meter had the lock ring installed.
