Re: Non-GFI NSTs

Original poster: "Harold Weiss" <hweiss@xxxxxxxxxx>

Hi Ed,

Most had one shattered terminal with the other completly gone.  Most of them
were newer types with epoxy potting.

I don't really need any now, but it would be nice to have a couple of spare
12/60s on hand, or at least be able to still buy them if all else fails.
