    Talking Darwin Awards

    I recall a few years back one of the "Darwin award, Top 10 Recips." Was out "Frog Giggin". The lights went out on their old truck. So they stuck a .22 LR. shell in there to make do. It heated up and """POW!""", shot him in the family jewels. Although it didn't kill him it did take him out of the gene pool.
    I guess be thankful the last service guy didnt have a couple of 45-70 rounds in his pocket.

    They look a little oversized.

    I've seen that done before.
    If they had used a disconnect, instead of a modified "fused disconnect", you wouldn't have noticed.
    Same result.
    They must have been out of that size disconnect at the supply house.
    Hopefully, it has a circuit breaker upstream.

    So, did you install fuses or leave it like that?

    Does it violate code, or just look funny?

    (By the way, all things that look like circuit breakers are not circuit breakers.)

    The hollow copper ones are slow blow and the solid brass ones are slow blow. Its about time you learned the difference.

    OK, I just saw all the replies. First, how do I get the picture to display in the thread.

    Second, Yes I did replace the copper with real fuses, and as soon as I figure out how to display the picture, I'll post it.
