    I'l bet craftsman is not the maker. Wouldn't be suprised if Fluke built it. Cannot believe it really cost $150 to put electronics in a meter case. It mostly hype

    It does everything except amps so I have a separate Amp meter.
    This thing does volts,ohms,capacitance & temperature if you have a K-type temp probe for less than thirty bucks. I've got about three or four of them in different tool bags. The temperature part seems to only last about a year but its a handy little tool & if I break it, leave it in an attic or under a house I just buy another one. I learned along time ago not to buy expensive tools if a cheaper one will do the job in the field. Expensive tools are for the guys that are neat & take care of them. That ain't me. I'd go broke if I replaced all the tools I break or lose with top quality ones. To each his own but if you're looking for something cheap that will do the job this one is hard to beat.
    Trained on the Fluke 116 and it never leaves my service bucket.

    But I'm looking for an economy/back up meter for my install bag.

    Is that a uF function just to the left of high noon?

    That's the ohm functions, the uf function is the little blue lettering at 12 o'clock.
    It only reads up to 200 uf but thats enough for any run cap.

    Fluke t5-600 multimeter, I love it because it has a holder for one lead allowing you to hold the meter with one hand and one probe in the other.
