I have been looking for resettable fuses for some test leads. I have not been able to. Checked out Radio shack, a local electric supply house, Granger's supply catalogue auto supply, Only thing I could find was at a boat supply place, They were rated for 12 & 24 volts only. You have any suggestions where I might find?
