Great classic meter, ideal for tube homebrew work  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Widely available from eBay and other sources. The 11 megohm resistance on DC voltage ranges is good for avoiding loading error. After some restoration work, it should be accurate and provide many decades of service. When purchasing one, be sure to check the internal battery -- a 1.5 volt D cell -- to make sure it hasn't leaked and damaged the chassis or nearby components. The meter usually comes with a convenient one-plug "Uniprobe" with a built-in switch for changing between DC volts and AC volts/ohms.
