Got any paper insulated, oil-filled and lead-covered cable?

April 10, 2012 | By Anthony Capkun

April 9, 2012 – The Electrical Heritage Society of British Columbia seeks “a short piece of paper-insulated, oil-filled and lead-covered cable (with or without armour)”. This type of cable was once generally used for high-voltage feeders.

“I think any museum for electrical equipment should display a sample of this cable,” says the electrical heritage society, adding, “Many other types of cables and wires used in former days and would be interesting subjects for displays.”

If you have anything that fits the bill, email Karl Jessen at annakarl@shaw.ca

The Electrical Heritage Society of British Columbia has a display at the new EJTC Training Centre in Port Coquitlam, which you can see in our VIDEO as we toured the facility last fall.
