        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.

              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.
