I'm sure that's true in many cases, but I did succeed. This meter has
a wire shunt for the main current and an 8.1 ohm resistor in series
with the movement across the shunt. I was able to parallel a 68 ohm
resistor across the 8.1 and the calibration was perfect.
They are delicate little things as you say, but with some patience
and careful work, the hobbyist can be successful.
