    How to disassemble the Pz.Nr.2b ' steckdose?


    I have cover from Pz.Nr.2b radio box.
    I need to disassemble it to clean and paint.

    To remove the steckdose from the box safely (screws are extremely rusty), I would like to know the construction of the steckdose.

    Would somebody be so kind to give me some cutaway or any other pictures explaining the construction of the steckdose?

    The other questions:
    1. Where are the nuts in the steckdose' case?
    2. If I remove screws, will the steckdose disassemble into 2 parts (close to cover and far from cover) or will it stay solid? If second, how can I disassemble it into 2 parts?
    3. What temperature can the steckdose withstand? Is it possible to heat the screws to remove them or this is danger for steckdose' case?

    Thank you in advance for any help.


    The steckdose is in two parts. The base with the plugs and nuts, the second part is just a bakelite piece with holes for the screws and connector pins to pass trough.




      I have seen also Steckdose in one piece.
      Maybe late-war version to simplify the construction.
      Bakelite is molded around two hülse and there's
      two holes with threads for screws. That's all.

      But in principle there's no difference for you removing
      either version. You need very good quality screwdriver
      and heating/freezing intermittently + penetration oil.
      Vinegar also eats rust. Eventually screw will turn.
      If not, then you have to drill it out.

      Is it battlefield find?

        I don't know exactly. Looks like digged up from the ground.

          Quite a high temperature actually. 100 degrees is not a problem
          at all.
          Your best bet is to find powerful soldering iron (at soviet time
          there was "topor" style big soldering iron) and try to
          heat the screws via small bits and then turn back and forth.

          ps. i originally thought this was this finding.
