    But sir, the production test station showed they were good, when I
    pushed the red button the meter stopped at 100A just like it's
    supposed to!

    Never knew that. The "AG" originally stood for "Automotive glass"
    whether in 3AG 1 or AGC 1.

    In fact the 3AG is the old commercial designation (and old military) and
    the AGC is the new commercial:

    The fuse definitions are identical in this case: a "3AG 1" is an "AGC 1"

    At any rate we are unlikely to see these fuses in modern equipment as
    automotive is all spades and most home electronics is the smaller GMA.

    My most recent home entertainment electronics purchase was a
    1971-style HP RF Spectrum Analyzer.

    BTW, the VLC player v2.0.1 has a .wtv codec and can now play back HDTV
    recorded with 7 Media Center on an XP machine.

    I use xbmc, free and it plays everything without any codec or what-not
    add-ons needed.

    The people hired to operate production line test stations typically
    know so little of electronics that it's really hard to guess what they
    might assume. I designed what I thought was a UAW-proof control panel
    for a machine for GM, then watched the operator whose nose remained
    buried in a book swat blindly at the buttons until she heard the fans
    turn on.

    First Color Organ? Did you get it to trigger the low fuel lamp?
