So only one person you know that was looking for one...?

Latest addition - a 1914 Duncan HC rotating standard for testing DC meters (Thomson Recording Wattmeter etc.)

Visited a friend last weekend, and her husband's late father was a superintendent of the municipal utility for some years, and had taken home a few discarded meters over the years.
The fellow said the other 3 meters were in storage and he'll get them dug out before we meet up again this fall at Rollag - if this was such a nice goodie, can't wait to see what the others might be!

This meter needs a bit of help though - the wooden case needs to be reglued and the interior has decades of dust and cobwebs. Everything else is complete, however, and the leather carrying strap is in fine condition! I'm not sure if the wooden enclosure is missing its bottom (the fact it's a standard meter strongly suggests it should have a bottom to the enclosure!)
