Among the stuff that came out of that basement, along with the hundreds of tubes you picked up, were a Simpson 260 VOM and an RCA Senior VoltOhmyst VTVM. I couldn't resist keeping them, though I will probably never use them, beyond putting them back to original performance.
I drew the line at the Tektronics scope dating from 1948, though. Could hardly lift it and its bandwidth would not have been enough to align the RF and IF of the Pilot FM tuner I salvaged.
You will use the Simpson, at least. There is something about a mirrored analog meter for audio use, aligning and several other tasks that come to mind, where needle dither is important information. Yes, my Fluke has a bar indicator, but not really the same thing.
Some will state that a VTVM is required for proper alignment of vintage equipment, as the settings on the alignment charts were based on a VTVM. Not so much in my experience. The Fluke works just fine. After all, one is centering to a signal.
Good call to keep them in any case!
