About this project

These are a great way to reuse old 1950’s / 40’s Voltmeters. Totally useless in todays modern world. Each Meter is stripped back to the bare wooden chassis, then re-finished and fitted with a Nixie clock display. Then completely rebuilt and finished off with lots of Steampunk detailing.


£495 — £2500
