Vintage AC Voltmeter Heathkit Unboxing & Build

Over at Evil Mad Science Laboratories, RobotGrrl got her hands on a vintage AC voltmeter Heathkit and is going to document the unboxing and kit building process.

Heathkit was the original electronics kit company, and their kits were extremely popular after World War II.  Their first popular kit was an oscilloscope, which sold for around $50 (a lot of money at the time, but a bargain compared to available commercial oscilloscopes).  The main selling point for Heathkits, was that if the purchaser bought a kit, and built it themselves, they would be more able to troubleshoot and repair issues.

I recommend you check out the fantastic unboxing photos of this kit, which happens to be in amazing condition.  RobotGrrl will post the build process photos up soon.
