IR-12 Infrared Circuits Tester  - Assembly Photos 
Built By Pete Zenner, Sioux Falls, SD.
Shown below are photos of the final result of my assembling the IR-12 Infrared Circuit Test Unit. I potted everything into a small tin box and it fits pretty well. The panel meter is a 50uA from BGMicro (Part# MET1017). The remainder of the parts are pretty standard fair. The diode receiver is called an "Infrared Phototransistor" by Radio Shack. I stuffed it into a Radio Shack LED Holder (#276-080) to shield it from ambient light.

I was looking for a more professional looking enclosure and think that this one from www.mpja.com (Marlin P. Jones) will fit the bill: 15518 BX http://www.mpja.com/5in-X-25in-X-175in-Black-Plastic-Box/productinfo/15518%20BX/ Marlin P. Jones also has a 100uA panel meter which should work, in case people want to buy all their supplies from one place: http://www.mpja.com/0-100uA-Class-25-Analog-Panel-Meter/productinfo/8725%20ME/ They used to stock a 50uA panel meter, but I don't see it anymore.
