not really but i came across this old a$$ electric panale in a 100 year old mansion (still in operation). this thing stands about 6' tall and looks like something Dr. Frankenstine would have in his lab.

Put a picture of that on EBay. I'd love to see what it would collect. See if you can find the electrician's version of LS and get some feedback. That is awesome.

I think "Vintage" vs "Antique" :)

How many zones? and did it operate a pump as well?
