Whole hodgepodge of stuff this time.  Take a look at this web album for pictures:

Would like to have you gentleman have first shot at these before I move them to Ebay. Shipping is not included unless otherwise stated.  Will be shipped from zip 64014 - generally I ship USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground (for bigger items). 

Condition: Not tested and don't know if it works unless explicitly stated in description. 

National ACN dial.  $15
This is a used item and dates from 1949 or prior (has a calibration note on the dial that dates it!). Works smoothly. Plastic overlay is a bit rippled and yellowed and the paper dial needs to be replaced.  Would be a very nice dial for homebrew 'vintage' transmitter or receiver. Please note that the output shaft coupler was cut down by the original builder. Take a good look at the pictures.

TS-297()/U Multimeter.  $20
Nice condition - see pictures for more information. Uses a standard dry cell for the ohm meter function. Nice and small and rugged. No manual or other information.

Shallcross #670-A Low Resistance Test Set    $10
Measures from 0.001 ohms FS to 0.500 ohms FS. Includes calibration resistor. No manual or other information.

Homebrew Audio Oscillator   $10
Very nicely built audio oscillator with 12AU7 tube. In nice case. No schematic, informaton, etc.

Vintage Davco Radio Set Tester Series 58   $20
Not at all certain but I think this dates to early 1930's.  I don't have a manual for this.

Hammarlund parts assortment         $ 35
This is one of those little mystery boxes you find in your stash and you try to remember where the heck you got the stuff. I think these may be parts from  a Hammarlund Super Pro. Includes the S meter, 5 small knobs and 1 bandswitch knob and 4 tubes.  I have not tested the tubes.  I did test the meter and it seems to be in very good shape - needle is straight, moves smoothly with applied current and seems to take about 0.15 mA for a '9' deflection.

Any questions, desires for more pictures, etc, please contact me off list.  If you send me your zip code I will figure out the shipping charges and get back to you with a total price.  Thanks.
