I picked up this old  Mars Capacitor Tester at a car swap meet last spring and put it up and forgot about it.
 Ran into it again and  it had a bad fuse and put a new one it and it worked, it is 115 volt.
It will test from  0 to 100 mfg on one setting and 0 to 500 mfg on the other you have to push a button to test caps if you turn one  setting on  you can use the  probes for continuity tester.
Dose any one have a good guess what size fuse it should have?

I have a picture of the case ,it is rough but the meter is good .

I would start with a 1 amp fuse and plug in to your Kill-A-Watt meter and measure the amp draw...
Adjust from there.

Thanks for the tip.
I did use a 2 amp to test it
I didnt test the scale  for accuracy.
Im going to clean up the case and paint it.
