    My Fieldpiece SC56 is a great meter but the leads are definitely too short.
    Not sure. def much longer than the ones that came with my sc77. One thing that irks me is no matter what leads i use with my meter i can't get a resistance reading lead to lead less than. 0.4 ... Both sc77s I've owned.

    What ever lead's you use be sure to test them often.Before you start troubleshooting.

    Your life depends on it.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I agree.

    I generally test for voltage before I pull the disconnect to make sure my meter is working.

    I use a fluke 116 meter and 322 clamp meter. The basic fluke leads have always been fine but i want to try the twist lock leads at some point. I would like to get a fieldpiece sc77 for everyday use so I can stop carrying two meters. i always keep two thick alligator clip wires in my bag for when i ohm out motors or need my hands free for other things
