Hi All

What PPE do you chaps wear when having to pull a service fuse for a CU change.

Also has anyone pulled a fuse that has been damaged in any way leaving a dangerous situation?

Thanks

I always use ARCO.
Good selection of gear at good prices, occasionally have general outdoor clothing on discount as well.
And it's only 10 mins drive away for me, which is handy!

Does anyone actually dress up like Darth Vader to pull a fuse?

perhaps he's going to weld it back in after.

I saw a DNO guy pull an old porcelain one once that must have been cracked as it fell apart. That could have been a bit nasty.
