He probably has everything you need in stock Dorian.
I hope the guy is okay.

Sometimes these things happen and we start paying attention.
We should pay attention all the time. Someone could have been killed here.
Scary what we do for money.

600a. Those were double lugged for parallel. I think the boss wants 3 or 4 lugs for 3 to 4 sets parallel

Those go for <$1,000 reconditioned and tested, cheaper from used dealers if you don't care about tested per NETA

Try The Breaker King. They have a lot of obsolete breakers. Definitely helped me out. You can find them on the web.

Could the OP explain to me again just how this occured?

Was the electrician opening the breaker and somehow put pressure on the deadfront, causing the bracket to bend in?

Or was he putting the deadfront on when this occured?

They just source stuff, and they don't fully test them, try asking for a primary injection test report next time.
