Hello All,
I am currently trying to find out where I can get original or new fused plugs utilizing the Edison type fuse base such as the ones Zenith used on the end of the braided cloth power cords used on early Zenith AC Electric radio receivers (late 1920s era). Zenith used these on the cords of the  power packs with model numbers such as ZE-10, ZE-11, and ZE-12. (I know the ZE-10 Power Pack, which was used with the 1928 Zenith 33X radio set, the ZE-11 was included in the 1928 35P highboy console, and I know the ZE-12 was used in the 1929 Zenith 39A console?

First, I would like to know where I can find these types of fused plugs (new or used), and if they had a special name, what were they called? How many amperes were the fuses in the plugs rated for? About how much would it cost to buy these plugs (new or used today), and does anybody have any suggested search terms I could use online to try to find them?
-Thank You

I have dozens of the Edison screwbase adapters, they have the bi-pin socket molded in. Most used. Many are of the "mud" composition, few are Bakelite. Many different manufacturers.

Would you like them all?

I do not have a vintage home so I will never, ever use them. I will eventually smash them and salvage the brass.

If we are talking about the glass screw in cased fuses that screw into a standard light socket, I have a large box of them somewhere in storage. They started from 1A to 30A ratings from what I can remember.
