We don't have pennies anymore. They just round the prices up or down to the nearest nickel, in Canada.
(Mind you, I still have a couple of jars of them)

Aluminum round stock can be cut to length........ but for higher current draw steel should be used. For smaller fuses a 1/4 inch straight router bit works

Please note that my tongue is firmly planted in my cheek right now....... don't try this at home.

If your home has a fuse box then you better use hand tools.


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

What fuse? On the farm my dad used a wire hooked on the end , hooked over the knife switch to the main bus bars.The screw in fuses all had pennys behind them. How about 2 single wires strung on the ground 2 feet apart for hundreds of feet? Don't step between them, VOE. (with bare feet too).

Don't blame him ,that was the way it was done in those days. When you were out in the field and you needed power ,you just walked over and hooked onto the lines, no plug needed, just tap in anywhere. Both wires were 120v, so all you needed was one wire and drive a steel stake in the ground for the other leg.
