Oh, yes. Mine is in rosewood and stunning, having been refinished. Now I just have to see how best to connect the rather funny looking two prong breaker. I have never seen connectors like on that thing.

Steve,
Post a pic of the breaker and measure the dimensions of the terminals - I can probably find the correct connectors.

Much obliged! Will do once I get it. Should not be long.

Looks like the contact prongs are 1/4" in length, about 5/16-3/8" stagger (offset) Body of the thing not counting the contacts in only about 3/4".

Steve,
Could you measure the diameter of the terminals themselves? I looked at the pic online and as far as I can tell those are solder terminals. But depending on the diameter of the terminal I may be able to find a crimp terminal that will work.

Thanks, Tom. Yes, these are circuit board chassis pins apparently. Turns out I was able to figure something out with the help of a car audio guy and a computer guy. Bought a single auto fuse holder (with cable in and out) and a fuse for same (you know the flat type with the wavy element in it). The computer guy will solder the pins of the breaker to the fuse, then plug it in and test for continuity of course. Should be fine. Next will be to see if it cuts out too often, though I doubt it will as it is not often it gets those high sound levels. Can always go up a step if needed.

Much appreciated your time on this in any event, Tom. Thanks!
