I am researching original Magnetic Veigel Tachometers, their construction, materials used for the odometer wheels and other gears, such as worm drives. Period photos or factory parts diagrams, showing the detail in these instruments.
I have an original Veigel Tachometer dial plate fitted to a post war/modern case, but how old I am not sure.
Compare this dial plate with the copies, there is a big difference.

MAW Speedos were prodeced in the German Democratic Republic GDR from 1950 to 1965.
MAW was the Name of Factory for Magdeburger Armaturen Werke. Magdeburg is a town in Germany.
MAW Speedos Look like the Veigel Speedos . They have a very good quality.

With special thanks to Lutz Seyfarth who kindly gave me this information while he's on holiday.

No your Veigel Tachometer is

No your Veigel Tachometer is post war, the odometer wheels are plastic.

I am unable to do this as the gauge is now assembled.
