Now if there was a melt rating (in amps) for different size wires.......

 

I had a customer who found out the hard way that a 1/4" bolt does not make a good alternative fuse.  :cool:

Actually a fuse is a short piece of wire rated to fail/melt at specific amperage and here in Thailand the main fuse into homes was required to be fuse wire or foil until recently.  It, depending on melt, is not very fast so offers little protection for short overloads.

 

As they say - "Don't do it"
