Sprague Capacitor Analyzer TEL- OHMIKE Models TO-5 or TO-6. Usually about $100 on epay. I have a TO-6.
Two caveats: It is a two wire instrument with IIRC a .01uF cap across the hot side to ground. They also used the infamous Black Beauty caps for reference values.
But when operating they are great. DO REMEMBER that film caps can have a bite the next day after testing. Not Fun!
