Now here's a neat find - a double-hanger LM obround can with a glass lightning arrester!

So you finally found one! Wonder if this is a repaint? Here's an original black one I'd found: www.ipernity.com/doc/ndlinegeek/32865661

While I've found plenty of these double-hanger L-Ms on other utilities, I haven't seen much in the way of these on co-ops! It was a most pleasant find, especially on this recently-constructed line. I do suspect the can was re-painted to sky yuk at one point unfortunately.

Nice old can with the glass arrester! I've shot a few pole with the long glass arrester on them. Are they considered more rare and older than the porcelain ones?

Thanks! The glass arrester CSP transformers are not too common. They were made only by Line Material Co., while many manufacturers made many types of transformers with porcelain arresters.
