Yea Harry, when you’re urban exploring you’re supposed to take only pictures, leave only footprints. Not strip out the old abandoned buildings for a quick buck.

Hate to break it to you but cutouts are still frequently used.


And knife gates too.



What you have is just old, not necessarily antique.

Add a spring and they’d make great doorbell buttons. Nobody’s ringing your bell unless it’s really really really important!

Google "steampunk"
eBay + the word steampunk + 600V vintage knife switches = $💲

Mount it up high on the wall and leave a shotgun stick hanging in the ring?

I get a cold chill looking at those things thinking how close I came to being killed opening one up when a full Delta bank ran away on me a few years ago. I didn’t think the arc would quench and I had it fully open. I thought it was going to flash over phase to phase and explode.
Bad times.
