searching for a cartridge fuse

gergNovember 27, 2009

I have a 1963 house with the old glass fuses and two cartridge fuse holders. One of the cartridges are missing, and without both in place, I have no 220v. I am in Atlanta, and have looked in all the usual suspects, Home Depot, Loews and have been told to check out this Electrical specialist, who unfortunately only sells wholesale. Does any one have any ideas where I can find one. YES, I know I should update, but I don't have $5-6 grand to drop.

Are you looking for one of the pull-out fuse holders? Search eBay. Rarely do electricians have room to store old stuff that cannot be used on new jobs and probably will never be used. Do you know the name of the manufacturer? Bottom line is that the old pull-outs are usually not available.

"but I don't have $5-6 grand to drop."

5-6 grand for a service change? Damn I'm moving there then!!

wish I could charge those prices.

as for your question though... searching online is going to be your best bet.

Is the other cartridge for a range? Maybe you could use that to feed a sub-panel if its ampacity is sufficient, and move all homeruns to the sub.

Are you looking for the holder or the fuse. Fuses should be readily available.
