I would like some advice on how to display a meter collection. I'm fed up with my meters being stored in the attic and want to proudly display my collection. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. If you'd like, please post a picture of your display (or PM a photo to me).
Any suggestions and ideas would be much appreciated.
I have long wanted to put up a sheet of plywood in my storage shed and then put up several rows of screws (although it would work best if the screws were on the studs themselves - could probably add a second one between the existing ones to double up on the space).
Here's a picture I took of a display at a friend's place in Wisconsin: www.ipernity.com/doc/ndlinegeek/45706978 (this same friend has a model 2400V line in his backyard, built at 12" to the foot scale).

Make a working display of the meters as meters are designed to be spinning around. I will take a couple of pictures shortly. I have 3 working displays in our house. One with main meters taking all the house loading and some are in use as check meters on panels or just stand alone set ups. Have a look on YouTube under my name in which I have a variety of set ups and showing about the mechanics of certain meters.
Many of my meters are turning around on the web.

Shown are some of my polyphase watt hour meters I have on display. They're happy just sitting on the floor against the wall. Westinghouse, General Electric, Sangamo, and Duncan. The Duncan is actually a two stator network meter.

mikeymeter: Do you collect the dial types for each specific meter? (example Westinghouse CA with 4-dial, 5-dial or odometer style?) Do you have S type single phase demand meters? Can you post a few more pics of your single phase collection? It's always cool seeing what others have in their collection.
