Simmons Shielded Anemometer

Postby Mike Brown » 2011 Dec 21, 20:34

I have in my possession one of these beasties. All brass and walnut case etc. Unfortunately no instructions. I have managed to trace the original Simmons paper to the latter stages of WW 2 (with great help from the me Office Library staff), but no further.
In essence it appears to be a hot wire anemometer, but I really would appreciate some info on it with a view to getting it working again. Has anyone any pointers they can give me? I can post some pictures if necessary, just do not have any at the moment.

Best wishes


PS I have another weird and wonderful instrument coming soon
