A "capacitor forming tool" is simply a (eg) 60/75/100 watt bulb in a socket with two leads coming out of the socket that are inserted into a fuse position of a PDC panel in order to "form" the fuse POSITION itself before inserting the fuse and holder. When you do this you'll see the light glow and then should diminish to nearly nothing within ~5 second. Then install the fuse holder and fuse after bulb stops glowing. This allows a fuse holder, it's bus fuse and it's cartridge fuse to be inserted into the PDC with blowing the fuse.
