    89B clockwork

    I thought i would show you the similarity of the German long delay type (17) fuze clock and that of the Airburst fuze type(89) that ran for 120 seconds

    Thanks for posting steve

    cogs are the only thing which seem to seperate these two.

    Fingers crossed they will be compatible

    Hi Guys
    Will keep my fingers and everything else crossed that you can get the part to restore your (17) clock back to working condition.

    Hi Steve

    Thanks for that,and hopefully a short stay in my mates intensive care unit
    and they will go again,probably for the first time i would imagine.

    Then a brand new lower case to enhance it a bit.

    Still ticking away merrily!

    Question...Once the clock winds down and the firing pin engages,will that be the end of the clocks for good?

    No naughty bits in them whatsoever,the det was removed long ago as ive studied the plan drawings and there was no trace of the number 26 det anywhere except for the space in which it should have been.....
    it would be good to know that i could get these clocks wound up again and possibly record that ticking for posterity?

    Better get the old clock stopper out as you have had 16 hours already.

    I would think you could disengage the firing mech and start the rewind again.

    Fuzeman should be able to give you the low down on Re starting the clock
