I don't have enough room for any more Mike but I don't mind mooching over and taking digital photos of them if you think that would shift them more quickly. No charge.

Mike.
I think we're going to need, at the very least, a list of what you wish to dispose of.

Photos are on the avometerserial number gathering part of the forum. All work in some way or another, but some, not all the ranges. Perhaps I should put them on Ebay for silly money ?
I would really like to sell them all in one go, to one gent.

Re: Loft Clearance. Avometers
 
My personal view is that any old Avo will have some sort of fault on at least some of its ranges, even when working. I would advise giving each one a quick test on a DC voltage range measuring a 9 volt battery, this will at least confirm that the movement is working and that the rest of the meter will probably be repairable. I think that people will just have to accept this if they want to buy one off you. You may struggle to get 20 plus postage for any not working at all, and a lot of people won't want to risk ones that may be partially working, but have faults.

Birketts in Lincoln was selling them fully working with new leads and batteries for 40 over the counter. Last time I looked he had one in the window for 30.

I've got a number of Avos, several of them, although a little bit dodgy on some ranges, do work and I use them regularly, while several are so dodgy that they're unusable. I'll get round to fixing them all one day.

I firmly believe that everyone who does vintage servicing should own an Avometer.

Re: Loft Clearance. Avometers
 
So what's happened with the meters are they still available and cost for working not working and pictures.

Re: Loft Clearance. Avometers
 
I would like to sell them as a job lot if possible.

You haven't set a definite price if they have to go as one lot. 'Around ten' at 20 each isn't definite as a group, though it is if sold as individuals. One of the quirks of the forum rules.

These are the ones in your album: https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...hp?albumid=743
You have multiple posts in the AVO thread, which may or may not be these.
Please add some detail to your offer, as without clarification this thread will have to be closed as it's going nowhere.

Re: Loft Clearance. Avometers
 
So last try possibly pics of ones for sale courtesy of Bill.
How much for the lot? Taking into consideration no pics and no guarantees any are actually working fully.
Cheers Chris

Re: Loft Clearance. Avometers
 
Sorry also a bit confused here. OP post seemed to suggest these were being sold individually (20 each 10 postage) which is why I asked about a specific model. Now it appear that the sale is as a job lot? Perhaps this explains why I have had no reply to my PMs? Seems from the album pics, there is one example of the model I am looking for....

Re: Loft Clearance. Avometers
 
This is getting nowhere. Please raise another post(S) with what exactly you want to sell with individual and/or combined prices.
