question regarding a western electric telegraph sounder
I hope this is the right place, Ive been lurking instructables for years, but haven't posted in the forums before. I am working on a project that involves an old western electric telegraph sounder... I am having some issues and am trying to troubleshoot--when I put a meter on the two leads on each of the two coils, I get no continuity beep from my meter, and its reads 130 on screen... What does this mean, aside from the obvious 130ohms of resistance? I apologize as I know this is probably a no-brainer for a lot of you, I'm just bumbling through this stuff, figuring it out as I go.
