    Rheinmetall Fuze testing Set

    In his biography the developing engineer of the Rheinmetall electric fuzes, Herbert Ruehlemann, mentions, that about 2000 quite expensive electrical testing gadgets were produced and delivered to the german air force for field testing of the Rheinmetall electric bomb fuzes. With these gadgets the condition of the capacitor, resitance and other electric parameters of an electric bomb fuze could be tested. I have never before heard about or seen this gadget. Does anyone here have any further info, seen this item or even have a picture ?

    Hi,
    IWM in England has a copy that I have seen. There were a few copies made by Ruehlemann before his death. Where the others went, I don't know.
