Default He shoots, he scores!

I was on my way to Bendover Electrical Supply to pick up a 200 amp panel and drove past a Blowes. I decided to drop in, expecting nothing, and found one on clearance for $200 off.

It’s Homeline crap but I will sacrifice my self worth for one time only.

Monopoly money doesn't have the same oomph as good ol' greenbacks.

This is Canada. A 200 amp panel with a few breakers thrown in is usually $350 plus. The wholesalers sell bare bones panels but the retail packages are usually the better deal, especially if AFCI’s are included.

I agree, Homeline ain’t bad, I just don’t like the little spinnerama ground bars and the way the breakers fit.

So you got all of that for $150? Seems like a really good deal.


Oh and BTW, I don't condone G_C making fun of us Canadians like that.

Yes but when I think about it we don't have that gay service entry bull**** so it should be cheaper.

Most of them don't come with many breakers. Sometimes 5 or 6:
