Anyone have any info on this insulator? Where it was made? Lines it was used on? Can't seem to find any info on the net as of yet...

According to this:
http://www.insulators.info/insulator_geography/

They were used in Vancouver. Seems to be a low power electrical insulator. I think there was something written up on this insulator in the old Canadian Insulator Collector magazine.
I'll take a look tonight.

Hi All:
I can offer up that the BC smooth base insulators were found around Regina Sask. Not very many were found with a smooth base.
The drip point version was found Around Vancouver and in a few places on the BC coast.
Just info ............. Robin

Thanks all, Robin I've definitely saw a line running along the #1 highway outside of Regina so I might have to check it out!
