it's mini fuse for scooter and motorcycle, not the standard size for automotive
Just ordered some. I'm getting frustrated as I fix one thing (after waiting 2-10 days for the item to arrive) and then something else breaks or malfunctions or I drop the tiny nut down the air duck and I have to do it all over again. I haven't printed in about 40 days and really over this cycle.
@veti Thanks! 1amp fuses in cars must be a European thing as my car doesn't have them and the 4-5 automotive supply stores don't carry them.
1A isn't a common rating in cars, but they are readily available on eBay and elsewhere. Search for "mini blade fuse".
@dc42 Oh, I've found them, but it is the 2 week "slow boat from China" that I am trying to avoid! I ordered some through fillastruder so I'm all set!!
If there is a suggestion box somewhere, It would be cool if there were the three replacement fuses included with the board. They literally cost pennies, but would be such a life saver in case of an emergency.

@bearcattd Duly noted on the suggestion!

Including pennies for free to millions of people costs tens of thousands of dollars (maybe Duet hasn't sold millions yet, but for argument's sake)! If those people never use those pennies, that's thousands of dollars destroyed!
But, if we're asking Duet to throw some more pennies our way, including at least one spare shunt connector would be welcomed, too, especially for the Duex. An extra one is needed to enable the 12v regulator.
@bot Raise the price for the board $1. 00. I'm good. There were quite a few items included with the board that I am not using. Sorry for wasting your money Duet3D!

@bearcattd I agree fully. I'm willing to spend more to get all the extras. Just wanted to brainstorm reasons why companies don't send EVERYTHING we could possibly ever need. It ends up being wasteful.
As mentioned on https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Connector_and_spare_part_numbers#Section_Blade_fuses, you can also use a 2A fuse. Those should be available from auto parts stores.

@dc42 Yup, 2A fuses branded "MiniFuse" are everywhere in Canada at any/all autoparts places - even garages.
As was mentioned, the 1A fuses are only available (that I've found) at Canadian Tire off the shelf as I know they cater to auto and motorcycle owners. I bought packs of 2 to 5 of each fuse size and also purchase a pack of 2A fuses in case of emergency.
No matter, I realize it's not rural Missouri. I hope you get your fuses very soon.
