I know the best option is to replace the fuse box w/ a breaker box, but I don't have the money to do so right now. Here's the problem...

1) 15 amp Type S fuse will no longer screw into the Edison Base in the fuse box because it has been replaced so many times the threads are stripped. Is it possible to replace this base so a fuse can once again be screwed in?

2) Can a fuse box be replaced with a breaker box without having to rewire the entire house (there are no grounds throughout the house) ?


Any help is appreciated

Thanks
