They have a funny movement with almost no mechanical damping.
0 to full endstop with an audible whang! If I had a bad one I might think about finding some alternative guts...

Hi Jon
Yes, they are rather lively!, I have just finished restoring my HRO M, cased it, then meter stops, subsequent test showed coil o/c.

I am scouring adverts for something that might fit the bill if an original is unobtainum,

Good luck. Not sure what I might have - it's been a long time. I have a box of HRO bits just don't recall a meter in there. Will look.

Thanks Jon
I have been offered the correct one if he can find it, and another gentleman has one as well, so hopefully should be sorted soon.
