Dyi Mini Blade Fuse Holder
Posted 21 April 2012 - 06:44 PM
Mini Blade fuse (30 AMP in this case)
Small female blade connectors
Heat shrink tubing of various sizes
Cutters/ soldergun and solder
First, disconnect, or in the case of my son's Cybergun Sig 556, cut the feed wires to the stock fuse and battery.
As you can see, I have already cut the stock fuse assy out and fed it to the dog.
Next remove the plastic sleve from the female blade connector
Now strip the wire end and cut some small sections of heatshrink for the connection. I use a small dia section to cover the solder joint and a large one to cover the complete blade connector.
Solder the joint and slip the smaller heatshrink over the joint.
Heat and shrink the tubing on the connection
Now slip the larger Heatshrink over the full lenght of the blade connector and shrink.
The finished connection installed on one side of the fuse.
Repeat the process for the second connection and install on the fuse. Use a long tail on the wire as we will fold this back later. Make sure to keep a space between the blade connectors. If they are touching, the viabration of the gun will wear thru the layers of heatshrink and make you have a bad day= unfused short= melted stuff.
Now slide a section of large Heatshrink over both connectors ( making sure you have spacing) and shrink.
Now fold the long tail of the wire back over the fuse.
Slide a short section of large heatshrink over everthing but leave the fuse exsposed.
Shrink and admire what a fine job you have done!
Reconnect to your gun. In the case of the Sig, I had to solder the connection.
As you can see, I have zip tied the fuse under the barrel ( the gun is upside down in the vice)

Picture of me and my son working on this for no reason at all.
The band-aid on my face is from some butthead with an overpowered gas gun hit me from 50 feet and it make a nice hole. I know who he is and will pay him back when the Noob DMR is done
