    Ive been searched almost half a day trying to find a 8 amp 250 volt slow blow fuse.
    I checked Ace hardware, radio shack, home depot, and online places. And I still cant find a shorter version of this


    its the exact fuse I need but too long. Where can I buy the fuse I need :(

    (the fuse is for this)

    Auto parts stores. They carry a whole host of fuses.

    what do you want a slow blow for? the fast blow one is norm better and will save your equipment.

    for overload protection, fast blow out for short circuit and slow for overload, you don't want it to trip or blow for something that say draws a lot of power for first couple seconds and then goes down in the amount of current use. We used fuses and overload relays like this all the time industrial electrical applications.
