  • Test of will power

    Spending the day in Sioux Falls, SD today with my wife babysitting our 4 month old grandson. I have a hard time sitting still this long so I hit stores that we don't have where I live. Here is my brag - I spent probably an hour in Home Depot and another hour in Menards and never spent a penny on myself. Now that takes will power.

            That's not will power. That's just unnatural.

                Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
                a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
                Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

                They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

                Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

                Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

                I found this information on fuses in general.

                Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
