    I am trying to find what the "firing" level of movement was for this fuze (angle of tilt, degrees of movement, etc)
    Anyone have an old manual for this fuze?

    Hi E-Tech.

    Ive no manuals but ive seen the old BD boys talking on telly and they mention just a small amount of movement on the bomb would make the mercury tilt switch go off.
    There is a documented test case of where you see the Lab guys tapping on a bombcase with a pencil and a fuze they have rigged to a lightbulb has picked up the vibration!
    Hope ive helped a little?

    cheers
