Hello to all,

I've been looking for a fuse for my Bolex ESM motor. It's a 2 amp fuse, which is 20 mm tall, and 5 mm wide at the contact point. The motor runs on 12 vdc. To me, this is like searching for a needle in a haystack. There are no serial numbers for fuses. Back in the old days there was an old smart guy with an electronics store who could find me any fuse I needed. Now the longhairded dudes in the radio shack that replaced him are scratching their heads (and no offense, I am also longhaired ;) It seems its impossible to find a decent walk in electronics parts store in the NY metro area these days.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

The fuse is a standard component in the el-shops, "Quick-blow fuse 5 x 20 mm" 2 amp.
We've them in Sweden and they exists certainly in US.

Just jam any ol' 2amp fuse in there - fuse wire is good, or a nail

...or wrap the dead fuse in tin foil. In an emergency, that will work. :rolleyes:

For fuses in the USA, try Parts Express
