Ordinary fusees can only be wound by turning the fusee arbor anti-clockwise. Drunken fusees are fusees that can be wound by turning the fusee arbor either clockwise or anti-clockwise.


They are more curiosities than useful, but interesting none the less.


This article explains how drunken fusees work.



The second edition revises and improves the previous version.
