Default Replacement conductane meter for Hickok 533A

Hi Mates

I have a Hickok 533A tube tester which the meter is faulty. (damaged it while cleaning). I would need a replacement meter for that set. Spent about US$300 to get it to my residing country and now it's sitting in my store.

Deeply appreciate if someone could advise and help. I guess is the same meter with Hickok 600A. Tried looking at ebay couldn't find any.

Thank you in advance

From the manual of the Hickok 533A:

Meter: Model 66, 0-500 microA, 230 Ohms, black flush square, internal pivot.

Ref: 660-005

Won't be easy to find... But!

Thanks for input.
The Hickok 533A has 3 different scales on the meter with respect to various testing range selection dial on the tester.

I guess I would these scale for a precise conductance readout.
Any more advise would be appreciated.

Hi teocc_1308,
Buy the new meter. Move the scale from one to the other.
