      real hard to tell from the pic. Where did the wood come from (state)?

        Two things to help better identify it. As Scott said what state and part of the state. Also a sharper photo of the bark and the end grain.

        My Guess right now is it looks like oak to me.

          I know that black locust is very heavy and dense, but so is oak. Oak when cut has a sour smell to it. Don't know anything about gum wood.

              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

              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.
