    That's correct, I should have read my book again but when one gets older memory disappears

    Incendiary with AZ8312* fuze

    Hi,

    As you see, the incendiary in the picture seems to have detonated and then been successfully extinguished soon after. I don't have the history of this particular bomb but possibly it could have been delivered by the Luftwaffe during the Blitz. It is empty inside. Also the AZ8312* fuze is locked solid onto the rest of the body. Is there a way to unscrew it without damage? WD40?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tony

    Thumbs up A good soak !

    A good soak in Diesel will usually do the trick if you leave it immersed for long enough.

    You could also apply a "small" amount of heat to the body as it will expand more quickly than the fuze-assuming that the fuze is made of steel or brass-but do remember what the bomb is made of ! Magnesium is very potent when ignited and is an absolute b'stard to extinguish-so take great care with it.

    In my experience aluminium/aluminium ( and all it's alloys ) is the worst materials combination to stick together. If it does not turn out with minimal force then it most likely does not turn at all but only damage.
