What happens when you plug in a wrong fuse?


Recommended Posts


In my Grandfather's era, house wiring used screw-in fuses (unlike modern circuit breakers). It was not unknown to replace a blown fuse with a copper penny. It worked just as well to complete the circuit and it was cheaper/easier than actually purchasing a replacement fuse. ☠️
