Blew a 200Amp fuse out

Damn, what did you do?

DON'T cross those streams!

What was that a fuse for? Welder?

Makes a hell of a pop doesn't it?

Try a 2000 amp fuse. Those are a lot of fun.

Blowing a 50 amp fuse causes a demonstration according the Rolling Stones. Or something like that.

Just stick that pennie back in it's place.

It'll work, trust me.

What were you using that draws that much current?
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 1:26:27 PM EST
Do you always get what you want?

Link Posted: 11/4/2009 1:28:52 PM EST
If it were me, I'd use a large rifle cartridge to take the place of the fuse.

A guy I work with did something similar in an older building by accidentally connecting 277 to the building structure. All the lights went bye bye and we were very sad.

And you don't want to go into the supply house and hold out the blown fuse and say, "I don't care what it costs I need one of these right now!"

Surfing the ARFCOM GD of course!

Never mind the 16 monitors, and super awesome computer system to run them, quad core processors, etc. Pretty much the typical ARFCOM-ers set up in mom's basement.

Wow, I had a tiny little cap blow in a solar charge controller, sounded like a firecracker going off.

You should definitely polish that bulb with some fine sandpaper before you use it. It'll work much better.

I've got a fun pic i'll post for you tomorrow.....
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 3:02:20 PM EST
Did you throw it away?
Link Posted: 11/4/2009 3:12:03 PM EST
Holy cow that light only has 300H for its life.

Did the $1700.00 "light bulb" make it?

What the fuck is a $1700 bulb used for? World's best hydroponic weed?

Don't listen to these guys, they will get you killed.

Use a .22LR cartridge as a replacement
