  Dupont No. 0 Blasting Machine Top Closeup.jpg - DUPONT NO. 0 BLASTING MACHINE - Rare cranking wind-up Dupont No. 0 blasting machine; fires up to 4 electric caps, mfg. by E. I. Dupont de Nemours Powder Co., Wilmington, DE, oak dove-tailed cabinet, 6 1/4 in. H x 5 3/4 in. W x 6 in. D, marked on top DUPONT NO. 0 BLASTING MACHINE FIRES 1 TO 4 HOLES along with instructions on cranking and firing the machine, working condition with all original equipment and replacement leather strap  [Background information on this blaster has proven to be quite a challenge.  Hours of searching on google has produced but one reference to the Dupont No. 0 blasting machine in a table contained in the 1914 Handbook of Construction Plant by Dana.  A 1911 Dupont blasting supplies catalog does not mention the No. 0 blaster.  Thanks to my friend and explosives expert John Kynor, new information has come to light.  A 1909 Dupont catalog obtained by John offers the No. 0 blaster.  The page out of that catalog is shown at the end of the blaster pics.  The No. 0 blaster is no longer offered by Dupont  in the 1910 or later catalogs.  The search continues for any earlier catalogs that might show the blaster.  It is thought that Dupont for whatever reason only offered the No. 0 blaster for a very short period of time.  Three other No. 0 blasters are currently known to exist.)
