I just bought a lot of older electronic components from an old electronics engineer who recently passed away. He used to work for SAAB here in Sweden. Among his stuff is a box marked "B-5 Drift meter" and inside is a "new" Drift meter which probably never has been installed in a plane. The condition is absolutely perfect and it has been sitting in a box on a shelf for many decades. I had no idea what it was until i did som googling and found this forum. I want to sell it if anyone is interested. I can of course send photos of it. Sorry, I don't have any more information about it, since I know nothing about things like this. Would be happy to get some more advice on what to do with it/where to sell it.


William, from Sweden
