Vintage PIFCO All in One Radiometer AC And DC
This Vintage PIFCO All in One Radiometer AC And DC is a wonderful little multimeter that dates back to the 1930s/40s. It cost 12/6 when new. It has a black Bakelite case and was made by PIFCO, Manchester, UK.
The unit has not been tested and is being sold as a collectible, for display only. It comes with it’s original box and leads. It is in good cosmetic condition but with a few scuffs commensurate with age and use.
This is a great 1930s advert for the device. I particularly like the reference to Sherlock Holmes!
