    No. 65 Fuze

    Hi Everyone,
    Just thought I would share the photos of my latest find with you all, it is a No. 30 Dated 2/41 which has been restamped a No. 65. It was found with the transit cap attached, & the cardboard packing disk still inside! Unfortunately the spring had turned into dust, but I will get a repro made to suit. It took a fair bit of cleaning, but it came up a treat.

    Thanks goes to Invest for his hunting tip on where to look!

    Restoration job

    Hi Chris 42 RQ,
    I used a mild solution of hydrochloric acid & fine stainless steel wool to get rid of most of the dirt & tarnish, then used a loose leaf mechanical buff with some brasso to finish off. The inside of the transit cap & the fork are as found, as they were still shiny when i removed the cap!

    Cheers, 50CAL.
