Mr. Pinball Tip:

When debugging the reason for a blown fuse you can easily blow dozens of fuses until you finally find the problem. A quick inexpensive solution is to use foil cut into an hourglass shape wrapped around a spent fuse. The width of the waist of the hourglass determines the rating of the foil fuse. Under most circumstances you should keep the width less than 1/16".

This solution works well on electromechanicals, but extra caution should be used on solid state application.
