    Default Fuses for Vintage Machines?

    Can anyone tell me specifics about which fuses to get for a vintage Nishijin B machine? Volts? etc? Also, where are the best places to get them? Are there any ebay stores that sell the specific ones needed?

    Thanks in advance for your help.............

    I use AGC35-25. But pretty much any automotive fuse of the same physical size will work. I buy them by the hundred from various ebay sellers.

    I use AGC 2 amp, because I use up to 1amp power adapters, I prefer not to go with a large current fuse, if the adapter shorts I want the fuse to blow.

    I also use AGC 2 amp barrel fuse, you can get them at just about any auto parts store if you only need a few. I order them on line as I buy hundreds at a time. Your voltage is only 10 volts on most pachinko machines.
    Unless you try to be more than you are, what you are is all you will ever be.

    I'm confused. What is the difference between Rival's AGC 35 25 fuse, and Cardwwi's 2 amp 10 volt fuse. (I know nothing about electricity). I am using a 9 volt Energizer battery.

    Thanks............

    The 25 or 2 is the current rating of the fuse, current above that rating will cause the fuse to blow. Using a 9 volt battery, you can use nearly whatever fuse that fits as a 9 Volt battery will not have enough current to cause any issues. The 10 Volt is what your lights run on, they do not require a lot of current so the battery works quite a while on standard usage.

    Just stick with standard 2amp auto fuses. Current any higher and you could start melting wires possibly so I wouldn't go any higher on the amperage.

    100 machines and counting...

    When you are using a 9vdc battery the amperage does not matter at all. Even the little wall warts are only 1/2 amp.
