I don't have a Hudy truer so I could be wrong but if I am not mistaken some came with either the large glass fuse or a plastic blade type fuse that is available anywhere. Others came with the really small glass fuse that can be very hard to come by. That would explain the confusion.

My Hudy Tire Truer uses the plastic blade type fuses. What model do you have? Any pics of the fuse?

That's what I thought. Those fuses can be found at the corner drug store, hahaha. The little glass ones are tough to find in higher amp ratings.

I guess were all just going to have to agree to disagree then? I think where some of the confusion may be is that some of yall might be speaking about
12V truers, which I'm guessing take regular 12V automotive fuses? Mine is a Hudy manual ac/dc. I know everyone here thinks they are sure they are right, but I can assure you these ARE NOT sold in auto stores or Target. Just look here at what comes up when you Google 30A 250V fuse and you'll see what I'm dealing with. Dont ask me why, but the Hudy manual ac/dc takes a very quirky, rare, and extremely hard to find fuse. I appreciate everyone trying to help me, and I will look for the fuse and post a pic of what it looks like. At first glance it looks like your standard glass auto fuse until you take to the auto parts store and compare them side by side. Its TINY in comparison.

A truer that still uses a glass type fuse must be really old, somewhere in the 80's. Blade style fuses are used in the 90's. AC/DC truers they are still available in auto parts store Glass type. If not a electronics store should have them, Not just radio shack but a high end Electronic store. Or Go into Radio Shack websight and seach Fuses It'll be there, I just open it.

I know the fuse you need. I have a power supply that takes the same thing only in 20 amp. They are hard to find. I will do some digging.

This is a different truer with a different fuse and you will not find it in any local stores.

You have a PM. Look at that thing closely. Make sure it doesn't say 3.0A instead of 30A. Also please measure it and post the dimensions in inches and mm.

If I am reading Hudy's site right, that is the fuse you need.
