    i bet is the "magic" silicon hose...far superior to "run-o-the-mill" silicon hose. makes you more handsome, and wealthier too. you heard it hear, on the internets.

    The thing about selling OEM parts is that some manufacturers require you to list things at their suggested price. Also known as an IMAP.

    How about 10 for $1.50 each?

    http://www.stove-parts-unlimited.com/Whitfield_Fuses_p/pp3406.htm

    I know you can still get them cheaper elsewhere, but please try not to beat up a small business for following the rules our suppliers require us to follow. (FYI those Whitfield fuses also have an IMAP)

    I am not beating up on small business, trust me we have a lot of mom and pop stores here in my town that I will support any chance that I get. That being said it is unfortunate that these prices are being handed down, but anyone selling products on the internet are still making a profit regardless of the manufacturers price!
