Upgrading a fuse box to a 100 amp breaker box





Here is a house in university city that still had what looks like it original electrical service. The whole service worked on only 30 amps. The main 30 amp fuses were in that box with the circular cover under the meter socket. If you pulled the handle down on the right side of the box it would turn the power off to the house and expose the fuses.
All the individual house circuits were found 30 feet away hidden in the floor joists. The house only had 6 circuits. (Old services often fuse both the hot and neutral)
The new 100 amp electrical service combines the meter sock, main 100 amp breaker and all the house circuits in on location.
