Do we have any registered electricians on the board? I have a fairly (I think) simple wiring question. Thanks.

Throw it out there and let us have a stab at it.

Give me a call.

OK, here goes. I have an older Crouse-Hinds, Type F, 100 amp load center in one of my outbuildings. The single pole breakers in it are Crouse-Hinds and labeled as Type MP. I want to add a 220/240 circuit for a welder outlet. Whose commonly available breakers can I use in this load center?

Plenty of them on ebay starting at 4 bucks. Murray bought the product line.

Bob, so then a Murray should work?

Looks like it, from what is written on the electrical contractors forums plus they are called Crouse Hind/ Murray MP breakers. I did also see a reference to Cutler Hammer CL breakers being interchangeable.

I pulled an unused 20 amp breaker out of the box. I'll take it with me tomorrow and compare it to a Murray.

50 amp, double pole.
