    Any help with the banger collection

    Seem to have hit a wall with the collection......I know there are still dozens if not hundreds more to find yet....... anyone got anything for sale or swap that isn't in these pics..... don't forget the previous Standard Banger post from few days ago.

    But distance is never a problem...... thanks for keeping a look out..... only stipulation is they must be British and blue touchpaper type......

    No idea, that is how I found it, quite a rare banger in its own right.The bottle is sealed with red wax and looks like it was done a long time ago.

    I have these, don't know if they're in your pics or not because I don't know what they look like as they're still sealed with tape and I don't want to open them if not necessary

    I think they are the string type fuzes........ unless anyone knows any different.
    Thanks for the offer though

    Yep, they're definitely visco fuses, I know because I lit hundreds of those in my teenage years, just wish I'd kept at least one packet!! My best mate had a packet left over, and he would never sell them to me, I went up to £30 (and that was about 10 years ago) but he wouldn't budge! Now he can't find them, he wishes he'd taken my money!! :mad:
