A couple of power insulators I picked up at the Chehalis show are resting on the deck in my back yard. The porcelain multipart on the left is a Locke M-2360 "Fogger" dated 1929. These are known to be used on the California and Oregon coasts as fog insulators. Note the large bottom skirt with only a 7.5 inch top. The Pyrex CD 325 was a bargain for only a BUCK with some top crown damage. It displays well upside down and now has one of those solar yard lights stuck in the pinhole. At night a warm yellow glow floods the entire insulator! A new use for insulators not yet on record?
