The holes in the Triplett 630 "new look" cases are 0.300" in diameter, so the 9/32 ID size feet should fit:

McMaster only will sell 100 of them and won't send samples. I don't need 100. What's more, I am uncertain about the fit, and of course there will be shipping charges. I didn't look into minimum order but another surprise may lurk.

At this rate maybe I should just buy a new meter. Who makes these things, anyway?

According to some recent Ebay listings, I see that brand new "Triplett VOM"'s are being manufactured somewhere in China; based on the fact that new ones have a China sticker on their case bottoms. Somehow, that doesn't thrill me, as many of the folks that worked at the plant in Bluffton were our family friends or relatives. Would be interesting to "dissect" a new one, because the traditional Bar-Ring "self-shielded" movements were labor and skill intensive to build and to calibrate on the line.
