Anyone recommend a place to get some spare fuses?  I see some different ones on eBay with out of this world shipping fees.  Any special rating besides the 5 amp?

Want to have some fun trouble shooting a power problem,- forget you have power injection on the string and did not fuse the power injection.

Thanks
Steve

Not sure where you are located, but most automotive stores in the U.S. carry them--sure beats waiting.  I even think Walmart has them in their automotive section.

I purchased a bunch from Amazon. I've replaced one from my screw up. Search Amazon:
DB Link ATM5A 5 Amps ATM Mini Fuse

I have had a hell of a time finding them too.  Seems everyone carries 7.5a and up in the ATM size but I can easily find ATX (larger size ) down to 1a.

Found 7.5a at ace. Running with those for now.

They are 5a mini fuse. I purchased some from Amazon yesterday.  Here is a link to what i bought, but there are other listings if you don't want a 99 of them (+/-2%) Lol.

If you want fast acting bussmann here are these.  Search Amazon for this:
Bussmann (VP/ATM-5-RP) Tan 5 Amp Fast Acting ATM Mini Fuse, (Pack of 25)

Thank you!!!!!

What's my problem feeling compelled to buy 90 more fuses than I'll ever need!!!  I love a bargain price!!

If you live in a major city, you should be able to find a self-serve/pull-your-own-parts type of auto salvage yard.  I go to these from time to time because I'm a gear head as well, and you can easily pluck these right out of the fuse boxes of just about every vehicle made since the 90's with nothing more than a pair of needle nose pliers that you should have already for being involved in this "hobby."

Most of the time they will just tell you to have a nice day and not even charge you for them since it is such a insignificant item.  An added bonus is that you are re-using/recycling parts that would otherwise get scrapped rather than buying more stuff.
