New Old Multimeter!

I got a new piece of old gear the other day, and it's FREE! Here is a mug-shot of it, smelling of mildew and looking bad:

Yeah, it has some stickers on it, but who cares?
The yellow one mentions "Limited Calibration" limit: 1000MvAC & 200,2K Ohm ranges out of spec.
The red one mentions "Rejected or Uncertified" Pffft!

I opened it up for cleaning, here's a look at the internals: Notice that the battery holder has broken but the springs are long enough to keep it in place.

Now that it's all clean, it looks like this:

All that's left to do is to actually use it, test its accuracy and maybe change the LCD for something with a backlight, or even 7segment leds because it's quite hard to read.
