TNT Dynamite Blasting Machine Plunger Box - Museum Quality Replica Prop
KaBlaammm!!! The dynamite blasting machine is one of the very iconic props used in early films for practical effects demolitions. This small wooden box would contain a geared motor connected to a dynamo that would generate a strong electronic charge when the plunger was pushed down. At the end of the push, a switch would send that charge to the two thumbscrews attached to wires running to the blasting caps in the dynamite.
Our prop is a (non working) hand-made version of the antique dynamite blasting machine that is modeled off of an original Hercules blasting machine. Every detail of this hand crafted hardwood box is correct, including a faux-finished bronze stamped name plate, bronze finished thumbscrews, worn leather handle and expertly crafted dovetail joints. The plunger slides up and down and features a hand-turned handle. The entire piece is hand crafted, hand stained, and weathered for a perfectly authentic look! This is museum quality replica and is worthy of permanent display or use during any production.
NOTE: This prop is built to order and requires time to be built, please allow a minimum production time of 5-7 business days prior to shipment.
