    People are afraid of fuses but they do open circuits [ disconnect] faster than most breakers
    But you are right they are less user friendly

    I sure appreciate all this information, and I now agree with you all and my husband, the fuse box will stay.
    We have plenty of fuses and managed to find a replacement for the big main knife fuse, used but in perfect shape, from a local electrician.
    Thank you!

    I do not rely on my memory because I ran out 1 Megabyte ago.

    I bet the students really enjoyed you as a teacher.

    Hello Bob. I hope all is well.

    Must have been a year ago or so.
