I've just completed the wiring for my Ormerod 2, and have reached the point in the commissioning where I turn on the power supply for the first time... only to discover the IEC plug I picked up from JayCar doesn't have a fuse in it! I tried to scavenge one from my son's BrainBox kit but it's not up to the challenge. Nothing is open over the long holiday - does anybody have a spare one? Happy to pay for it, or I can shout you some beer for the trouble!

Dunno if this will work, but try using some 10A fuse wire out of your meter box? Wedge it in place with a piece of plastic or dowel.

Surely you must have another IEC plug somewhere on a computer or whatever that you can pinch whilst testing?

(I'm not in Wgtn)

Thanks frankvdh! I managed to get into Jaycar today and loaded up on fuses, with extras to spare. I spent the rest of my day calibrating the printer!
