I've heard of the Norwood meters, and probably seen one in a museum. Do you have any pictures of it you could post? They were an ancestor of the Spectra line that was the standard of the industry in the 1960's - 80's. Getting it calibrated might be a problem. You might do better to sell the Norwood to a collector and get a new one.
