Yes try eBay. Some clown will charge £5 for a bit cos he’s pre cut it to the right length for a fuse holder.
No need to buy a full card of it when 2 inches will do

Look you lot. Forget eBay, Pete needs to just pop down BQ again, look again at the shelves in the electrical section, aisle 8 I think it is, far left-hand side next to plug tops & insulation tape. Its there, probably mixed up with the plug tops. ;)

that's 21p dearer than ebay, add cost of fuel, possible pint or 3 on way home, breathalyser.

I keep reels of all sizes from 5A-100A on the van, hardly ever need them now. I could have made you a nice card of wires!

I've liberated the occasional card when doing CU changes but more often throw it in the bin with the old fuseboard these days, then suddenly you need a little bit, as Pete has discovered. :)
 
Every time Pete goes to B&Q he gets told to FTO after some DIYer catches him chatting up their Mrs, he never gets a chance to find the fusewire!

Olde Locale Hardwaree Shoppe will have it.

Trouble is it's probably harder to find an Olde Hardware shop than a card of fuse wire.

Maybe Wilkos

pete if you're that desperate, i'll send you a card of fuse wire. it's circa 1950 so well matured, like us. :eek::eek::eek:.

I think you are missing out on replacing a consumer unit work.
