Proper fuse for old radial arm saw
I do not want to rely on the thermal shut off of my old 40 plus years old induction motor RAS.
It will be on a 20 amp 230 volt circuit and I believe if there is a jam or otherwise too heavy a load and the thermal shut-off is non-functional the motor will burn.
It is quite inexpensive to add a fuse to make sure. The amp rating on the induction motor is 8 amp at 230 volt. Would a 10 amp fuse be suitable? I am concerned about start-up inrush that can be twice or more of the rated amp of an induction motor. The type of fuse cannot be instantaneous fast reacting. What type of fuse is suitable?
