Hi Patrick, What sort of Avo is it, tube tester, multimeter? I hadn't realized they'd got up to series 12 in multimeters, 8 or 9 was the last I'm familiar with.<BR>Don Black.<P>------------------<BR>

Hi Patrick, Well, It still hurts when I pinch myself each morning so I guess I'm in the land of the living. Hope you're fine.<BR>That sounds like an Avo Junior, perhaps a late version. I did find reference to it somewhere but no information yet. I'll see what I can find. Do you plug the leads into separate sockets for different ranges or does it have a range switch and what is its sensitivity (ohms per volt, should be on the meter scale).<BR>Don Black.<P>------------------<BR>

Hi Pat, I've never seen one of that model before, looks like it's made for the auto trade. Avo make good instruments, the Avo junior was just a small general analog meter, not like this. I don't know if they still make those but I believe the model 8 is around $1000 now, I wonder how many they sell at that price? Perhaps if you email the sellers and ask if they have a manual they might copy it for you. I can't see one in the ad but it's worth a try.<BR>Don Black.<P>------------------<BR>
