I bought a 1948 multimeter for 5 bucks!!!

Yes i was at a garage sale today and i saw this square box, the owners said it dose not work, so i bought it anyways, so in disbelieve of the owners i decided to do a test anyways on a car battery and it WORKS!!!! i guess they dont know how to use it, 5 buck of an 1948 multimeter is a steal... here some pics of it

That's cool looking. Put it on Ebay with a $1,000,000 hidden reserve to see what people are willing to pay for it - only fix the focus on your camera.

less than $20 at local antique shops IIRC. Nice find regardless.

Something like that would have a higher cool value than monetary value....

I was at 2 antique malls today, which were across the street from each other, and both had booths full of old test equipment and radios and such
