RE: Multimeters
If you are interested in vintage calculators, you might consider buying a vintage multimeter for them :-) As with calculators, I prefer luminous displays in multimeters as well. There are still quite a lot with LED and Nixie displays being offered on eBay for decent prices. Many of them are professional calibrated units that were enormously expensive when they were made in the 1970ies. Even HP multimeters are easily found, but most of them are large units for 19 inch racks.

The one I use most often is a late 70ies or early 80ies from Philips (PM 2517E) with LEDs that can be found for around 50$/€/GBP. An interesting model is the Sinclair PDM35 that resides in a small calculator housing and has a very unusual purple LED display. In similar shape but slightly larger comes the "Schneider DIG.500" from France with Nixie tubes. Unfortunately it only has three digits.
