I've been offered a Solartron 7081 8.5 digit meter, but are having
difficulty finding out much about this. Is there any "official" place where
these can be calibrated? As far as I can see from a search of Companies


Solartron Instruments Ltd was dissolved in 2013. I don't know if there is
really anybody able to calibrate these things.

Clearly the meter is not in the same league as a 3458A. but I've been
offered it for little more than the cost of a new Keysight  U1282A 4.5
digit handheld meter! I've no idea when it was last calibrated, but I
suspect long ago.
