Tales from the Cube: "The Big Breaker Mistake"
of us have heard tell of people sticking a penny in a screw-in glass
fuse holder slot in an old fuse panel when either a replacement fuse
is not available or when the correct amperage fuse keeps blowing. Neither
reason is acceptable under any conditions, but the latter reason to
replacing a fuse that keeps blowing is especially stupid. Fuses blow
and circuit breakers trip usually because something is wrong and needs
attention. This installation of EDN's "Tales
from the Cube" feature shows how truly stupid people can thwart
virtually any measure of safety when it comes to electricity.
