What an awesome idea and brilliantly executed...BRAVO!
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

Thank you! This is somewhat of a simplified version of my ridiculously complex "Saber Calibrator" box that has various functions including volt and amp metering.

Thanks guys.

I hadn't really planned on making more, but a few people have asked so I will come up with something soon. The main difficulty it that I can't find a good source for that box, so I may have to do something a little different.
