    Demolition gear - I've shown mine, now show me yours!

    Hi All

    My demolition blaster arrived the other day. Here it is along with a few other items. I've left out all the usual fuses & stuff.

    I am trying to put together the whole "Portable Demolition Kit", & if I can quote from TM-E 30-451 Handbook on German Military Forces;

    PORTABLE DEMOLITION KIT 1940. This is a pack containing everything needed to fire charges electrically. It weighs 51 pounds, and can be carried by a handle or by shoulder straps on the back. It contains a small exploder (1940) and neon test tube, a continuity tester (galvanometer) (1926), 40 electric detonators, two spools of single cable and two drums of double cable, metal sleeve for crimping over electrical joints, a notched pocket knife, crimpers, and insulating tape.

    In my pic you can see the small exploder 1940. This is the smallest of the several models used. (I think whsammler will post some pics of the several other versions he has) The meter is used to test continuity of the circuit & the other bits I guess are self explanatory.

    What else is out there in Pionier land? Lets see all your demo gear!

    BTW I am looking for the neon, test resistance, & the crate/box all this goes in if anyone can help __________________

    A GLHZUNDAPRRATT 40 i belive with an internal resistance of 30 ohms and an external 80 Ohms resitance , it replaced the Field exploder model 1939 and wasnt as powerful.

    I thought i revive an old topic. I came across a Glühzündapparat 39 ABFG type det box, its different to the normaly seen boxes you come across, first it has a leather carrying strap and clip to hold a key, where as the conventional box has no strap or lugs to hold one, just the leather case. Secondly the name plate is different to the coventional type, see the photo's. I am just wondering if the one i have is a civilian
    type or could it belong to another branch of the armed services ie navy or airforce etc. Any ideas or info on these things.

    Third and fourth picture is the conventional type.

    Spotter, The collet crimp cap crimper looks just like what I saw used by Norwegian EOD from captured Nazi stores. They were even still using Nazi blasting caps, flaked TNT and 3 Kg demo charges in 1985. I've searched for years to find a crimper like that. Cheers, Bruce.

    Well, not much of a collection, but it's what I've got.

    The collet crimp cap crimper (say that 10 times real fast) is either Yugo or Czech, I don't remember. The SOG tool was acquired as much for the "POWER ASSIST" aspect as for the built in crimper. The last crimper set I've had since I was about 10 years old. Carry it/them with me at all times.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    Here is some more post WWII stuff, less emphasis on the tools and more on the material.

    Home for a bit and got some pix. Here are most of my Demo collection. My favorites are in the second picture, the USMC marked WM Schollhorn crimpers, the USMC 10 cap machine (rare to find one marked thus), and the Dupont No. 4 crimpers that I carried for most of my EOD career. Notice the Livens 100 cap machines serial number. All machines function as designed. Cheers, Bruce.
