I don't know off hand what power these take, but I can tell you this: a 3 amp fuse will run equipment up to 720 watts, a 5 amp fuse will go up to 1200 watts. There should be a plate on it somewhere telling you what power it produces. If you can't find it, I'd just stick a 5A lead on it, that'll be fine.

All UK equipment, and all leads with a UK mains plug on, will be designed for 240 volts.

Thank you Smiley
I was worried about having the wrong fuse as our wiring is interesting and I didn't want to risk anything

Not the best option! Kettle leads will have a 13 amp fuse........and be about 18 inches long!

thanks all. after moiras help last night we routed through the many boxes of wires under the bed and found a kettle lead with a 5a plug, plugged him in today and he works.

however i also realized i have no more bead release and after that i discovered i have no mandrels (making the bead release moot.)

maybe if i can eek out the last of my gas (dad took my bottle on scout camp and did not refill it) i can do some off mandrel stuff till FO :/
