I am looking at buying a fuse kit with an assortment of different values just to have on hand for repairs. I'm sure many of you know how annoying it is when you have a bunch of different fuses on hand already, but then that one 3/8 amp fuse blows and you don't have it. So you have to either order it or go out and hopefully find it at the store. I'd like to have a kit at the ready, just in case that one Skateball fuse blows, and then later a Fish Tales fuse goes.
So a few questions. Does anyone have a recommendation for where to get a fuse kit with a bunch of different fuse values? Amazon seems to carry some kits, but they all look like the wrong size.
Speaking of size, what is the actual appropriate size fuse for pinball in general? Not amperage rating, but the physical size. I'm seeing sizes that are 5x20mm, 6x30mm, 3AG, 1-1/4", etc. and I don't know which one is correct.
For pinball, what voltage rating is typically used?
Should I just order from Great Plains? Mouser Electronics? Marco seems to sell either singles fuses, or kits based on an individual game.
I just want an assortment of fuses at the appropriate size (generally speaking, if a unique fuse presents itself then I'll manage that individually.) As my collection of pins grows, it would be nice to have fuses ready just in case anything needs replacing.
