This is a 3,000 amp service switch. The bolt got a little hot.
I think the others were not torqued well and that one was carrying most of the load.
If you look at all the other bolts, they have a black mark on them. That's what Sparkies
do after we torque one. The three on the blade with the red hot bolt are not marked!
When we finally did a shutdown and replaced it, that bolt just crumbled into dust.

OOPS!

Not a very flattering depiction of the Trumper, looks more like a fat headed troll. I wonder if they intended that (Psst: I'm glad he's in)..

New photo's to share:

Take a boat ride in the Villaggio mall in Doha, Qatar. Your girl will love it: http://www.villaggioqatar.com/Gondola Rides.html



This mall is amazing, that blue sky with clouds is painted on the ceiling throughout and a huge place.

:)

They pack a crowd in:

The Villaggio mall has an average of 50,000 visitors daily, they do business.

Any you have created or taken yourself is what I've understood, but more so your own photo's, I think. That one smells of spam to me.

DashApple: Man, that is one hunk of metal and does have the appearance of being several decades old, how old is it?

mjavala: I don't know having that in your signature is a bad thing, just that you only have a few posts and put that up right away, that's why I had the spam impression.
