    At the end of the set time the ignition needle pretense by a compression spring pierces the Anzündhütchen,

    The so originating ignition ray lights a black powder tablet which is in the screwed on fuse jack. The gas printing originating from it does the mole element down and the cable controlled by the fuse jack splits and the parachute is released.

    Hallo,
    this very well written text in german is translated to gibberish by the so stupid computer translation program. The text says: That after the preset time the clockwork releases the springloaded firing pin onto the cap. The flash of the cap ignites a black powder tablet, the resulting gaspressure accelerates a knifeblade which cuts through the parachute holding line threaded through the hole in the boostercase.

    Here is the unit I have in my collection.

    http://wehrmachtinternetmuseum.tumbl...-fuze-was-used

    Does anyone have a spare gaine for this that they want to part with?

    Thanks
