Fuse Wire
« on: November 13, 2013, 21:03:34 PM »

 So every time a light bulb goes in the kitchen (I have 6 bulbs) it blows the fuse
 Instead of ending up with flipping yards of 15 & 30 amp wire left on lots of cards around the place, does anyone know if I can just buy yards of 5amp fuse wire anywhere ???

If you are blowing fuses, there is most probably failing wiring somewhere. Get it checked and replaced ASAP DM!

If not, do you still have a little, independent hardware store...?

Our gaff's all relays, now. Mo fuses, at all. :)

 Cheers 'Kat', but thats what I've been buying, got 4 cards of in the house now but only using the 5amp.
 But I think there is still a little hardware shop in Pontypool, I'll have to see if I can just buy a good old length of 5amp from there maybe.

 @'Taf', it's only when on of the kitchen lights go that it happens  :-\

Little hardware shops still seem to stock the wire reels.

 Will see if Ann (big sis) wants to drive me to Pontypool tomorrow, oh, she will if I offer to buy an all-day-brekkie for lunch  ;D
