Description:I got this one from Jack Bell at the Mansfield Show. Looks like he cut it out of a shell because the threads are very nice and shiny. As a result, it should screw into a shell, but these are finicky. The fuse hole itself is difficult to clean the threads of because of the underplug shelf and the fuses tend to swell up a little. With some effort, however, this could complete a shell. According to Peter George, it has the ½-second line (and the "small pipe-hump" in the slot), so it is a CS-made fuze.
