Blown Ceramic Fuses

Post by valvekits » Fri Mar 29, 2013 10:31 pm

Something I found out today, those old/blown ceramic fuses that none of us would ever save, make good stand offs. 4BA screw is a perfect fit.

Does the part you are fitting onto the chassis still fit if one of the standoffs is rated at 3 or 5 amps?

Last time I took one apart it was the end caps I wanted so the ceramic tube had to go.
You can only save one or other of the parts.
As I use old plugs again including the molded type if there is enough cable still there I often have to replace the fuse with the correct type and also have a drawer full of 13A type fuses that are still OK.
I had to buy packs of 3A and 5A not so long ago :(
