Repairing a Broken Panel Amp Meter
Halted, I found this wonderful GE 1mA meter on the dollar rack. The problem is that it is missing the positive signal lug.
So in theory, this should be a very simple repair. Take out the set screws holding the meter in its Bakelite shell, desolder the remnants of the old lug, solder a new 8-32 bolt in its place, and reassemble.
Well damn. I can sit there and untangle the spring somewhat with a set of sharpened toothpicks, but I need some way to test the meter as I work on it.
