Anyone know how to make one of those boxes that turns the wheel on
your meter back?

I new a bloke who once tried to make one of those,he got the biggest

the 60Amp fuse and burned his hands in the process.

He must have wired it up wrong, or put the leads in the wrong terminal on
the meter.

I've just tried an old one, but instead of the wheel rotating back, it just
turns back a bit then stops, as if this meter has some kind of anti rewind
Is this possible?
