RobotGrrl’s Heathkit Build Continues

I’m following along as Erin “RobotGrrl” Kennedy continues to build the vintage Heathkit voltmeter she unboxed earlier this month. Now she’s continuing the build!

Last part we unboxed the Heathkit, looked at all the components, and started to build some of it. Now it’s time to finish off the build with the three main plates. This part is cool as you are able to see the creation come together before your eyes. We even created our own replacement part!
