Out of curiosity, what does a "fusible resistor" look like? What are the specs? I hadn't heard of any such thing before today.
In my experience, film resistors (i.e., the conventional carbon or metal film resistors) are "fusible" -- if you overload them significantly they will release magic smoke and stop conducting. Is that adequate?
