    Where do you buy single or possibly multiple fuse holders that will last. I found a few on flea bay but they are low quality made in china and will probably have good occlusion of holding a 6 x 30 fuse for about 6 months and then I will have to replace it. I found some Standard Motor products ET222 holders but they need to have the leads screwed on. They cost $10 for for of them in a block and I cut them into singles unless I am replacing a whole block but it seems like there should be better items out there that are as durable. Is there anything at Menards or Home Depot or a pinball parts seller website?

    I normally use Bussmann BK/S-8002-1-R as a good, general purpose fuse holder.

    Several electronics suppliers have them.

    If you're trying to match Williams fuse holders specificially, look for littlefuse 03540101ZXGY

    Don't use a flat strip like you have pictured. That type has a high failure rate. The tabs can only bend so many times before wearing out and snapping off.

    Avoid tin plated brass for anything of 'sufficient' current draw, the tin plated brass fuses should never be used for 8 amps or above (I use the tin plated berylium copper fuse clips everywhere).

    As Forflow mentioned - Littelfuse and Bussmann are good brands.

    If you want solder lug variety - try Littelfuse 035400xxZXGY where the xx = number of ganged fuses. Most popular is the single fuse holder - 03540001ZXGY. Bussmann BK/S-8002-x-R is also good, replace "x" with number of ganged fuses. Again, the single BK/S-8002-1-R is most popular.

    Board mounted variety (singles only): Littelfuse 03540101ZXGY is the easiest to find.

    When looking for fuse holders, check the base metals:
    Tin plated brass = low current
    Tin plated berylium copper or tin plated phosphor bronze = higher current capable
    Chinese fuse holders tend to be some sort of tin plated pot metal.
