Love that olive amber 126. Those early blobs are as good as threadless to me. Isn't there a red amber one out there somewhere?

Yes the CD126 is one of the first threaded insulators that come in some rare colors. Yes there is a dark red amber and even a purple Brookfield 126 as well. And yes again, you are correct again; these are harder to find than most threadless insulators.

I'm sure you're familiar with Jack Kesling, from Pennsylvania, I believe. I was just a kid when he was stationed at RAFB. He worked the line that goes through my town back in the '60s and found some goodies, including 3 purple 126s. Like one isn't enough!

Hello dario, i have a bunch of insulators that i pretty much don't know the value of, but first I came across one i have been told may be a lightning arrestor? I know it may not be your area of expertise but i thought i would ask just for kicks and giggles. Here it is General Electric? 6 inches in diameter on embossed end. About 11" in length. Very heavy piece at 10 lbs. Thanks for any information. ROBBYBOBBY64.
