I've been cleaning up around our warehouse a bit, and amongst the debris scattered in all the corners, I've come across a fair number of older meters, etc. I was just wondering if there is a market for these?
I'm talking about stuff like an International IC-400 multi-meter, a set or 2 of Columbia "Tong-Test" clamps, and the like. I know the owner had been in business for 35+ years, and was an electrician in the Navy before that, and his father was an antique dealer, so who knows how old some of this stuff might actually be.
Sorry, no pics as of yet, just wondering if it's old junk, or something worth having.

I have some old meters that I got from where I work for free. I have one that is really cool, it is a watt meter...basically an amp clamp and a volt meter combined. I also have several amp clamps that go to 1000 amps, scary thought.
