    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...

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