Vintage WG Pye & Co Pointer Type Galvanometer
This is a 1940s Vintage WG Pye & Co Pointer Type Galvanometer. Made by the famous W.G. Pye & Co. of Cambridge, UK. A company known for their high quality radios and scientific instruments.
Approximate Maximum Dimensions (when laid horizontally as in the above image):-
- Height: 11cm (including Bakelite ‘zero’ button)
- Width: 9cm
- Length: 10cm
The galvanometer is quite heavy, and made from metal (probably cast aluminium, and bakelite). It is in very good cosmetic condition for its age, with just a few surface scuffs and scratches.
It hasn’t been tested in earnest, but the pointer seems to be moving freely and is very sensitive. It would make a fantastic desk ornament for the vintage office, garage or man cave! A wonderful addition to a collection of scientific curios.
