Weston Model

Where to get info on a vintage aircraft gauge?

I found a knotmeter and I know you can look up part numbers on parts to track down what aircraft they came off of, but this is tricky.

It's a Weston electric instrument co's model 1023 knotmeter. Circlular, in gray with a black face and three holes for mounting, not four like common ww2 aircraft. It's labeled only 'knots' with a range from 200 to 1000 so it can't be from a boat. On the back there's just pos and neg connection points and a serial number. Also says 'use with ext thermo' on the face.

Any clue where to start? I can't find anything on google, now that's odd. I'd like to find out what year it was made and the aircraft it could have come from.

I too did a bit of searching on Google with the same results as yours.
My next suggestion is to contact vintage aircraft restoration facilities. Or contact the folks at the EAA in Oshkosh (B'Gosh), Wisconsin.
Another place would be to contact the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. This is part of the Smithsonian.
See the second link I have provided. Worth a shot asking them your question.
You can ask the people at the Vintage Aircraft Association. Last link.
Good Luck
