          The Tandy analog meters were pretty good. I had a 50k/V passive type for years.
          There was actually a 100k/V passive type. Big advantage was you could use them to monitor stuff for intermittent faults without any battery to run flat.

          The Precision VTVM might be an interesting restore job, but hey, the mains wiring safety would have to be improved if it were to be actually used. That’s lethal even by 1950’s test gear standards!

      • Doubt if that Precision VTVM could be powered by battery. The battery was probably just the reference voltage for the ohms range.
