I'm missing something obvious, I think.

In the plans I've seen for homemade jumping rings, I see nice mounts that
are essentially air core solenoids. I think that they are intended to be
plugged into a wall outlet. Why don't they blow a fuse when switched on?
Aren't they just essentially short circuits? What's the resistive load?

(when I was a kid, I wrapped many yards of wire around a can. I spliced
into a plug. My friend Wes plugged the plug into a wall outlet in my
basement. Luckily I still have my friend Wes. But what a disaster!).

Thanks in advance.
