The CANON 'A' series are very prone to the famous ' Canon Squeak' if you do not exercise them -- I have an A1 given to me with the squeak as it had not been used for 7 years since the owner died and I have been trying to lubricate it as I read on some forums but not with any success at the moment. I have several Weston Master V meters and some just given recently -- not working as the cells are probably gone with age.
