    German Ariel Mine Fuze(inert) 34B

    Hi Chaps,

    Here are a couple of shots of the 34B Fuze for the Ariel Mine.
    Im sure this is the type featured in the `Danger UXB!` TV series in the episode called `17 seconds`.
    I think there was a key that could be inserted to stop the fuze running to detonation hence the episode name `17 seconds`??
    This one came with the original cap and wire to it.
    Wire removed and all workings thoroughly oiled.
    Can any of you boys please tell me more about this one?

    best

    Super info,thank you very much Steve.
    This 34B i have is amongst my favourites now.
    I see that the letters on the fuzes were not painted black or other?
    Where they just stamped in and left unpainted or has any colouring worn off over time?

    cheers
