I have just examined a basement shelf and found that an"ancient" (ca 1960) Zeiss Tenax has a moving light meter needle an operating shutter, but how do I check that it is working as designed (apart from wasting a film roll)??

Thanks, good general advice,
But the Tenax does nor divulge its reactions, no aperture numbers , no time data visible. The Shutterr apparently takes orders frrom the light meter and the lens opening may also follow. The only visible setting is the distance symbols. No use for my old Metrawatt this time.
My question might be unanswerable except by practical experiment, - except that I have just used the only roll of Ilford XP in the fridge in checking out an ancient Contax ST. I must asdmit taht I have become reliant on the C41 lab since i cleared ourt my Nikor tanks and Microphen and fixer powderto mix for FP3.development
