Compatible Ckt Breakers For A LX112-24 Box by the Federal Pacific Electric Co. ?

Hello

Want to add a few circuit breakers to an existing box in a residence.

Hate to pull one out to take to HD, and realize that there are
many different physical sizes of these things.

Was wondering if anyone might happen to know what circuit breaker
models (single pole, 15 amp) will fit in a:

LX112-24 by the Federal Pacific Electric Company

who I understand is no longer in business. (true ?)

Thanks,
B.

Replace the panel. These panels are dangerous and should not be added to. Replace the panel, or at the very least add a sub panel.
