Here's an interesting find while troubleshooting a brake press.
It was one of those "and what is this"? I pulled the fuse and read it .... an FNQ-R3 was supposed to be installed, a TRM-7 was soldered to the blown 3a. It truly is interesting what some will do. I wonder where the burnt wire is now? (Sorry, the pic of the fuse installed didn't come out.)

I'd be amazed if that conglomeration actually stayed together with carrying current. Soft-soldering has a eutectic temperature of 332C, above that, this arrangement would fall to pieces. It only has to get hot on one side mind you. A very poor implementation of basic fusing rules. What sort of a clown would even attempt this, let alone think that it complies with the laws of electricity. Kirchoff's law would tell you that there is no way that this could work. Anyone beg to differ?.
