Yes I'd take the changeover switches over rotary ones any day. You can still get replacements for the Fluke ones if you need them as well as they are standard parts. Rotary switches seem to be pretty much dead now.

Yes, it had occurred to me that as it's a true RMS reading meter that perhaps I shouldn't try to adjust the AC ranges, but I think the whole thing was out anyway and had probably been adjusted in its past life anyway, knowing where it came from. Perhaps I could use the amplified output of an AF signal generator?

As the ranges are consistent I tend to use an AWG to check mine. I connect the 34401A up to it, set the AWG on full whack amplitude at 1KHz and then check the rest against that meter.

AF generator should be fine as long as it has stable amplitude.
