If anyone rips out a Chiltern VOELCB could you save it from the skip please for my black museum.

I have a Chiltern current operated ELCB in my collection along with a Wylex VOELCB and a very old Siemens 3 phase ELCB (thanks Stu) but not a Chiltern VOELCB.

Thanks in anticipation.

Will have quite a few Fed Stablok 20mA ELCBs coming out in the next month or so...Big boogers they are.
Never seen anything like that rated at 20mA.
Must have caused the building's previous occupants merry hell (suites of IT/Multimedia offices)

I would be keen to get hold of one of those and would also be interested in Federal Stablock with a black or white operating handle. I have Stablocs with green and orange handles in my collection.

I use the bits and pieces I collect when I am teaching to show examples of old equipment students may come across in the real world. One of the exercises I get them to do is hand around 12 examples of circuit protection devices with a number written on a label attached they then have to write down what it is in terms of BS, In, Type and fault current rating. My bag of RCDs are handed around to get heads scratching. If you rip out anything of interest I would appreciate it please but nothing containing asbestos for obvious reasons. Happy to pay your postage.

I've got some old Fed /ECB breakers you can have. I've still got a bag full of randoms that I was going to donate to my local college until they shut the course. Any good to you?
