Default Re: Fuses

No doubt this has been mentioned before, but it always struck me as strange that few British manufacturers fitted internal fuses in any domestic equipment, whereas most, if not all, continental setmakers fitted them, sometimes in mains primary windings, HT secondaries, and even LT (Heater) windings. It surely cannot be due to the differences in mains connectors because, as we all know, the old British 5 & 15Amp round pin plugs did not have fuses, besides which, the once ubiquitous lamp adaptor, again unfused was often used
