In the spirit of Before & After started by Mr. Howe ...
Here are the meters from a HCCT I picked up recently.

Thanks for the ata-boys :)

The only parts that were salvageable from the original meters were the cases.
I replaced the movements and coils and calibrated them.
The ammeter had to be wound from scratch.

Now on to restoring the rest of the HCCT.

I had a friend machine the broken area and make apiece to fit.
It is silver soldered in place.

Here is the final outcome.
It still needs a Mag-Ring and a flywheel.
The hand crank was broken so I will make this a motorized unit.

My goodness that's pretty work.

Something that was well on it's way to the scrap pile....being made whole again. Gotta love it.
