 The Demolition Kit 1940 

 

(Extract from TM-E 30-451 Handbook on German Military Forces)

PORTABLE DEMOLITION KIT 1940

This is a pack containing everything needed to fire charges electrically. It weighs 51 pounds, and can be carried by a handle or by shoulder straps on the back. It contains a small exploder (1940) and neon test tube, a continuity tester (galvanometer) (1926), 40 electric detonators, two spools of single cable and two drums of double cable, metal sleeve for crimping over electrical joints, a notched pocket knife, crimpers, and insulating tape.

 

CONTINUITY TEST (GALVANOMETER) 1926

This tester not only tests continuity but also measures resistance of circuits and detonators. It contains an ohmeter, resistance, and battery (1.5 volts). The battery is housed in a cylinder 4.7 inches high with the ohmeter on top. Adjusting screws for setting the ohmeter needle to zero and infinity are midway between the testing terminals. A built-in resistance protects caps from being initiated while being tested for continuity.

 

 

NEON LAMP

The neon lamp is for testing the small Exploder 1940. It also excites the electrical field of the exploder when used.
