Hi ,

For a story , I'm looking for refernce photos of a device that is used to start the explosion ( dynamite ) , the one with the handle you push or pull .

But I "need" a small portable device , not the big boxes but something light that you can carry in one hand , made before 1960 .

1. Does anyone know of website/gallery for such items ?

2. What is the correct name for such devices ? the closest I found was plunger detonator but even that didn't get much results in google .

Thank you .

Thats exactly what I was looking for and the image for the Wafen SS blasting machine is perfect for my needs . I wouldn't be able to find it myself even with the right term without your link .Thank you very much +1 .

Actually, I have a US Army 10-cap "hell box" (detonator).
