1960’s Vacuum Tube Volt Meter (VTVM)


This measures power in Volts, both AC (like from the wall) and DC (like from a battery). It also measures resistance in Ohms – how hard electricity has to work to flow through something. There’s technical reasons why this is superior to a cheap Radio Shack multi-meter for many uses, but really, it’s just waaaay cooler.
