All of our fuses that blow we toss. A few of us started to take apart the larger (75 amp and up) fuses apart to recycle the copper/bronze

I've seen guys pulling apart big super-fast-acting power fuses use to protect thyristors because apparently the elements are silver or platinum or some otherwise precious metal with scrap value.
