A fun little build. The Gaspers meter from the deleted Fort Detmerring sequence. Found a LaMotte Meter and added the light and port.ImageImage

I am continually envious, not only that you already have one, but of how FAST you ID'ed the thing and set about fashioning a replica. I think he had this in his possession about a week after the Blu-Ray with the Fort Detmerring footage came out.

On the other hand, I am just relieved that we finally know what that one item on the table during the Twinkie discussion was.

I've circled the LaMotte. Funny how I'd been asking about it for years both here and on the RPF, and I'd also been talking about the Gaspar's/Gasper's Meter from the storyboards, but I never imagined the two would turn out to be one and the same.

Now if you can just ID the other device for me! The one indicated by the question mark. Any ideas?

I lucked out by getting a few days with the bluray before the general release thanks to Fanfest. It's funny seeing it in the montage sequence now. Never ever noticed it. Gonna start looking at that other item on the table.

Oh, on the nightstand in the wide shot of the 'dream sequence' at Fort Detmerring?

NICE, I never spotted it there either.

Awesome mods - I’m assuming these are very difficult to find in the wild. Do you have any leads on other ones? I would love to get a hold of one!

Just keep an eye out on ebay. Search Lamotte meter or Conductivity Meter.

I assume it's only one prop and they used it in different scenes as set dressing but if you counted the deleted Fort Detmerring scene as actually happening in film then there must be multiple Gaspers Meters (in Movie) why else would they show a close up in the deleted scene yet have it just sitting by the Containment grid?

Had they used the Fort Detmerring scene I would think a one of a kind piece of equipment wouldn't just show up in another scene unless there's suppose to be multiples, unless they just scrapped the Fort Detmerring scene way before they filmed Containment unit Shut down scene?
So if Ray has it in the Fort Detmerring scene and Egon has one during the Containment unit shut down scene does that mean (in movie) there's two?

Fantastic point, never thought about it being still with Ray and Winston while the grid was shut down. I guess one lived in Ecto and the other in the basement.

Well, since I mined this thread for a lot of the information in this video, I'll post it in here.



Big thanks to delta88 for procuring me a LaMotte!
