omega meter schematic manual

Have a look at this

R5 R6 and C5 are your shunt ammeter in the schematic you linked to. You'll need to change R6 (possibly more) to change the ampere range.

You might find devices calld "panel meters" useful. They are usualy just analog-to-7-segment-converters, primitive cheap voltmeters. They are fairly common industrial parts. Here are some examples:
