Some of those ratings look a bit optimistic to me !
Aluminium foil has a fairly low current carry capacity and is only suitable for small fuses.
Steel nails have a fairly high resistance and surprisingly low capacity.
The most durable large fuses are made of short pieces of copper pipe, some outlast the electrical installation, or even the building in which they are installed.
I do like the fuse with an auto audio visual alert though !

Do you have any idea where you can get the fuse with the auto audio visual alert? I have a few customers who could benefit from them.
