Non-Tractor Electrical Question

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Non-Tractor Electrical Question

Postby Don McCombs » Sun Mar 27, 2011 2:32 pm

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. :D
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

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.

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.
