    A friend of mine asked me about them the other day. Does anyone know where you can still get them?

    Buss fuses you can still find them in many auto stores. I think the selection is less than it was but they are out there. This web site might help for some odd ball ones.

    You'll find then right next to the "New Style" Fuses.
    If you can't find them at your Local Kragen(O'Reillys)/Vato Zone:)D) or Pep Boys,go to Napa.
    They're cheap enough,so always buy more than you need....

    I recently bought a nice smaller buss fuse counter display rack at a swap meet that was over half full of fuses for 15.00. I filled the remainder with what fuses I already had. Other than just being cool to have on the shelf, it should keep me in fuses for the rest of my life. Keep an eye out for them at the swap meets. Resonable and good to have around.
     
  10. Heck, the grocery stores here still carry a Buss assortment pack on a card.

    .22 cal-shorts for short fuses- long rifle for the longer ones.
    Not sure what amperage they will handle.
