    Hoping to get into service in the next few months at my work. Meaning I need to buy some more service tools because I do installs now. Most of you out there do you get help with the cost of tools or discounts threw your boss ?

    Ok back on topic

    Currently I have a $20 craftsman meter :-) its simple and I think I used it 10 times if that.

    My teacher had a nice fluke and those yellow field meters, the head were interchangeable.

    I would like to purchase one that wont go out of date with the future coming quick.

    I would recommend the one below.

    TRMS isn't that much more than the standard model.

    The one below will allow you to test most of the measurements that you will need. If you do a search for meters you will find a wide variety of options and opinions.

    Amprobe ACD-14 TRMS

    Its a must to have this meter at least i have it. You need it for the in-rush capability.

    As far as a multi meter i have a field piece but use that only to check continuity and voltage readings. Think it runs for about 40-50 bucks.
