Default Varipower CS48 Zero Resistance Ammeter

Offered here is a Varipower CS48 Zero Resistance ameter. The voltmeter is working, but I am not sure about the ameter side of things. There is a screw missing from the front panel and there are a couple of tropical-fish type caps inside that have cracked surfaces. It is rather tatty and I have not found any information online. The only work I have done on it is to replace the broken sense sockets and reverse-engineer the circuit. I can provide a copy of the drawing on request. Offered on a spares/repairs basis.

Offered at 20 plus postage.

Those tropical fish are polyester, probably OK unless the end comes adrift!

H!!

I couldn't resist the temptation any longer and @ 12 plus p & p that was enough for me, there's still a few gaps in Wavey Dipole's Circuit that I'd love to fill in!

(I'd have wanted it even more if Wavey Dipole hadn't done his diagram!)

PM Sent!

PS!

Perfect for Part 2 of my T & M book!
