ive got a 13 amp,5 amp and a 12 amp fuse

sorry couldnt help it:xd:
Good morning Dano,
Is the fuze at the right in your picture a German HZ 140? If so, could you tell me anything about it?
I'm waiting for the postman as I've bought one and expect it today. I suppose 'waiting for the post' is part of the excitement of collecting!

Good morning navyman, well at least it is morning here. Yes that is an HZ14 German WW1 fuze. It is characteristicly heavy as it is large mass and solid brass. Classic German WW1 percussion fuze with arming by the combustion of a compacted powder grain ignited by a concutor, blocking a stem in contact with inertia block.
Used on explosive and gas shells:
90mm K73/88 guns
100mm K97, Ko4, K14 guns
120mm sK 12cm heavy guns
150mm IFH 98/09 light howitzer
150mm IFH 16 light howitzer
IFH Kp Krupp light howirzer
and a few assorted others;
The HZ14 is not an uncommon fuze, but on the other hand is anything easy to get anymore? Not over here!
I added my latest pic of my German WW1 fuzes. Best...Dano
