    Clock stopper

    Hi everyone
    i thought i would show some historic bomb disposal equipment that is located down at brenzett aeronautical museum
    Thai was the very first magnetic clockstopper
    The Horse Colar was placed over the (17) clockwork fuze , it was connected to a supply of batteries and switched on .the electric field created by the coil was enough to stop the clock

    That must have weighed something awfull to generate that kind of magnetic field to penetrate the bombs casing.

    Hi Phil
    The horse colar weights in excess of 180 lbs , to manhandle down a shaft was a feat in itself!
