We are looking for large analog meters that can be used with young students
to learn about electricity, voltage and current.

Seems like I remember seeing them with terminals for banana plugs or finger
tightening wires to the meter.

I did a quick Google but didn't see what I was looking for.

Does anyone here have any idea's?

Thanks.

If you've got the analog meter, building a holder wih banana plugs is just a
matter of some simple sheet metal work. I would start with Surplus Sales of
Nebraska -- they've got a wide variety of surplus meters available for very
good prices, as well as red and black 5-way binding posts. Just get some
stick-on rubber feet, a little wire (also available there), and you're pretty
much good to go. You might be able to convince a shop teacher or somebody in a
tool room somewhere to knock off a dozen chassis for these meters for a case of
their favorite libation.

I don't know if they still have them, but Surplus Sales of Nebraska was
selling unused military surplus multimeters with decent sized scales a few

They often are offered on Ebay for very reasonable prices, although shipping
may be expensive.
