Ammeter guidance

Neil Clayton
 

I’m gonna declare my ammeter (an old Van’s steam gauge) well and truely dead.

I can’t afford a digital EMS yet, so I’m just gonna replace it with a cheap Aircraft Spruce analogue ammeter.

I see there are 4 to choose from (I don’t wanna spend hundreds, and I want one with the center-zero)).

VDO 2-1/4” $73.00
30 AMP 2-1/4” no-name $73.00
Michell 2-1/4” 60 Amp $69.00
Micro-1000 2-1/4” $73.00
(Not Westach)

Anyone got opinions on these?
“Don’t touch it with a barge pole" is good input.

Thanks
Neil

If I had to replace a discrete ammeter or voltmeter, I would look into one of the digital units on eBay for just a few bucks. Just mount it on a round plate to use your round hole.

You may consider just using a volt meter instead. There are advantages to having both,  but the volt meter really tells you all you really need to know.
