A fuse is not a replacement for a properly-sized motor OLP overload protection device.
A fuse will protect wiring, as previously stated.. but you'll just keep asking the question until you get the answer you want, right?
Overload protectors and TP thermal protection devices aren't the same, and are intended for completely different situations.
The OLP will react rapidly to protect a motor in the event of a sudden machine jam or other fault.
The application was previously stated to be a bandsaw which previously had a smaller motor on it.
Generally, fuses aren't motor protection devices, and won't replace a proper OLP.
