i feel uncomfortable working with my breaker box while the feeder cable is hot (even when the box is turned off). i was thinking that i could just turn off the main supply from the meter but i could not find a way to do it. attached is a pic of the meter. the house is almost 100 yrs old, so i guess the meter is not the latest model either.
I once read an article in the utility companys safety sheet about a meter man who was in critical condition from not installing an electrical meter correctly. The meter blasted off the house with enough force to leave glass shards throughtout his body.
If you do not have the proper equiptment and training, do not remove or install an electrical meter.
