Introduction

I have built up a small collection of test equipment over the years and some items I think have turned out to be 'classics' of their day..

Fob watch voltmeter, There are no manufacturer markings to identify its origin but I guess it started out in the 1920's. The meter measures 0 to 6V DC.





JT Pocket Meter, c1920-30's. It has a dual scale, 0-12V and 0-120V DC.
Box.





Pifco 'All In One' Multimeter, c1920-30's. A true multimeter having five ranges - Lo tension, Hi tension, Milli-amps, Valve and Circuit test.
Box, meter & packaging, the back, the insides, and the instructions.





AVO Multiminor, C1930-1980.
Multiminor with leads, and the insides.

Generator, c1980




















Tektronix TM501 module with PS503A-Triple Power Supply, c1980













ETI111 Power Supply
ETI111 - My workings
One of my own builds, adapted from ETI project 111 Jan 1973 -
0-30V/1.5A Power Supply. This one has added volt/current meters,
volt/current range switches and up to 30V/1.5A range. c1976
















One of my own builds, adapted from ETI project 111 Jan 1973 -
0-30V/3A Power Supply. This one has added volt/current meters,
voltage range switch and up to 30V/3A range. c1977


















One of my own builds, adapted from ETI project 111 Jan 1973 -
0-30V/2A Power Supply. Built c2005 and added digital volt/current
meters c2014, Range up to 30V/2A.



























Bringing my bench PSU's into the 21st century, from top to bottom:
0-30V/2A ETI PSU
5V with USB socket
0 to 50V 2A
+/-5V +/-12V 2A, 3V3, +/-15V 2A,
All c2017
0-45V 3A, c2018
































Wireless World 1983 Autoranging Frequency Meter
Another build, from Wireless World 1983 and built shortly thereafter - an
Autoranging Frequency Meter - up to 10Mhz.
The PDF includes the article and my build notes.









































Waveform Generator Datasheet
Another build, from the 1979 RS Components datasheet on the ICL8038
waveform generators. This one was built in 2006, I had built one in the
early 80's but I don't where it is now!



























Kits from Banggood.com, a waveform generator and a frequency counter
