METER FACE (was Mantua gearbox, etc...)

Casey Sterbenz


There are several inexpensive graphics programs out there that allow you to scale a drawing as you print it. Why not try making a drawing of the meter face you want at a size, say, 10 times the finished size you want, then print the image at 1/10 the drawing size. That should yield a very neat looking meter face.

Well, for "dyno" testing , I got as far as computing the required shunt for my
ammeter. I have three very nice zero center 100-0-100 uA 1Kohm meter movements
from the MIT flea market. The dials are marked -15 -10 -5 0 5 10 15, so I
thought I'd wind a shunt to make a -1.5 to +1.5 Amp meter. Druther have a
little more range, but re marking the meter dials neatly is probably beyond my
skill level.
