Straight skinny on Zinsco panels (history, reasons for failures)

I just added this “Zinsco Electrical Panels(history and Inspection recommendations)” article to the Electrical Reference section of my website. It’s from Wikipedia, but I cleaned it up a bit and shortened it (Still quite a bit of info).

Anyway, I found that reading it gave me what I think is a pretty good understanding of these widespread and often dubious panels, and some insight into why they fail, what names they went under, etc.

Nice work Kenton,
Thank you

Great job Kenton.
