Bad Dog Designs
Heritage AVO MK II
The Heritage Avo, is made from an original Avo Meter manufactured anywhere from the late 1930s to the early 1960s. These were the definitive piece of electrical testing equipment and used by engineers, lecturers, electricians, and the military worldwide—an iconic piece of testing equipment known to millions of engineers of the era.
Bad Dog Designs gets old scrapped, faulty, or damaged meters that all have their own story to tell and can range from an early MK 7 up to a Avo 8 MK III. They are all original, and may well have the odd mark or dent! Some have handles, some don't—it just depends on the life each particular meter has had. The one you receive may not be identical to the one shown in the photos.
Each meter is carefully cleaned, and any broken glass is replaced. A Nixie Clock is then fitted into the dial, and what would have been thrown away now gets to carry on its journey.
