    I have two of them, but only experimented with them, never used in earnest. Pretty straightforward - just lets you see the emitted spectrum and measure the wavelength. Easy to calibrate using the sodium D lines:

    I have a manual for it... I have not scanned it in yet... There is also a massively long sheet showing the spectrum.. I will see what I can do with it..

    Here is the manual https://www.dropbox.com/s/fyeyydbpxs...metascope1.pdf

    Here is a scan of the three tables.. They are big long sheets and I could only scan one page at a time. So they are all over lapped by a big degree so all the info is there... If someone has lots of time on their hands they could cut and conjoin the pages to make one again.. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fyeyydbpxs...metascope1.pdf

    Generally what you do is first find the sodium band... It is the brightest orange band you will find... If the dial is calibrated properly it is #10 on the dial... From info I have gathered to use these devices properly you need to be trained and generally doing it all the time so you get an eye for what you are looking at.. They are fully obsolete items since X-Ray florescence devices came into the affordable range for industry... Mine came with a box full of known samples of various steels..
