MG belt loader table

Post by M19 MADMAL » 16 Jan 2023 17:51

Hi,

Is there a standard plan for the wall mounted table that can fold up against a wall normally used for a machine gun belt loader?

The photo below shows the type I mean and this example is found in 'Bunker 20' on the Westwall.

Best wishes,

Malcolm :milwink:

Hi Malcolm,

Never seen a plan but many years ago we found a broken one.
Sorry no pics or factory drawings but i remembered the top coat was an asbestos plate...

It's called a Gurtfüllertisch, see no.9 on the drawing.
Scaled measurements are aprox. 700mm x 500mm


Best regards,
Marc

Hi Marc,

Thank you for your reply. Interesting on the asbestos plate. Was there any evidence of what the supporting leg(s) it had looked like as I have seen examples (reproduction) with a wooden leg or metal pipe.

Best wishes,

Malcolm :milwink:
