I wondered about the suitability of microwave oven fuses? They are 
readily available up to 1A and I guess higher current ones can be had 
for industrial microwave ovens?

I don't know about their ability to break smoothed DC? They appear to be 
clear glass tubes with no sand filling and so may rely on their length 
and the AC waveform to quench any arc.
