colour coding of blade fuses ?
« on: October 12, 2011, 12:17:02 AM »

Hello folks
Do any fellow members know if there is such a thing as a chart or similar mode of identification that gives the rating ie, 3 amps, 5 amps etc, of blade fuses just by looking at the colour of the fuse, as with my advancing years and failing eyesight that comes with it!!
I have great difficulty finding the rating on some of the different coloured fuses let alone seeing it !!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all the best, John.
