    Old fuze

    I'm totally out of my collecting zone with this one but thought it was a cool piece.
    Does anyone have a drawing of one they can post please. I assume the inside hole would have something in there as it is threaded?
    Thanks.
    Dave.

    I couldn't follow Glevums link so apologies if this diagram features in the thread. Hopefully you will find a good match with say, the Boxer 20sec fuze if you can accept that the protruding central tube has been broken off.

    That's brilliant thanks Norman.
    Now all I have to do is find one in decent condition.
    Dave.

    I picked up another of these old fuzes recently and have a question for the experts.
    The fuze in the first posting to this thread has 2 sets of 13 holes.
    The one I've just got has 1 set of 14 holes and 1 set of 15 holes.
    I'm guessing the one with more holes is a longer delay, buy why different numbers of holes on the same fuze?
    Anyone know why?
    Dave.

    On Bonnex's diagram,
    13 holes for 20 sec. fuze (first pictures)
    14/15 holes for 7.5 sec. fuze (maybe your fuze)
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .
