Hi Steve
The surplus market has been dried up for some time. This site has fair pricing for new meters and has the largest selection I have ever seen.

Subject: [Amps] Meters for HB amps?

Hello all,

Looking for analog meters f/u/w the current amp I am building, and for any in the future. I have done quite a bit of searching on the Internet and really haven't found quite what I think I need.
A matching pair of 1 ma movement meters is all I'm looking for.
The old standby 'Weston type' round meters are now considered 'antiques' and come with silly prices attached. Surplus houses don't have anything that will quite do it for me, either. Weird looking, wrong movement, only one, really tiny or VERY large, etc. I can get some direct from China for $4, but I can guess how that will work out.
Meters for commercial/industrial use are hundreds of dollars.

Should I really expect to pay $50, and up, for a 'Modutec' style of meter?

I can't imagine the market for reasonably priced meters has dried up that much, or costs have risen that much.

73 de Steve, NR4M
