Tell ya what -- my mom is bringing her (vaguely obsolete, supposedly) E-Meter up to my wedding. I'll ask her if my engineer-finace' can take it apart, and assuming she says yes, I'll post the findings to the net some-time mid-to-late August. My finace' is not, never has been, and has little expectation of being a Scientologist. (He thinks it's just an ohmmeter too.) That sound okay? (Hey, I'm curious too! I'd like to know what's in an E-meter's guts.)
