Bill, the voltmeter that I'm locking for should be at a halway display, i.e
that it had to be readeble from distance.
Those "wooden-box meters" are not suitble for that.

The other problem is that most of those sellers do not ship their goods to
Ayway, Thanks for trying, Simcha

These are quite common on eBay, in the form of portable wooden-box
moving-plate capacitive meters sold by "Sensitive Research." I own a
500V version, 5KV, and 10KV. There are several on eBay right now, search
on "electrostatic voltmeter." $49 is a very good price, though 100$ is
more typical. (One asks $500, that's silly.)
