i owned the hs36 till i found out i was reading way off in my amp readings. i discovered this while doing startup on vav boxes with a coworker. i use a fluke 376 now i like it but its definitely pricey. maybe look into the amprobe navigator seies. good price tons of functions and i think its made by fluke.

With so many meters being made with magnets built in, why not get on of those? The new Klein meters (newer than the one pictured above) look awesome, and will do everything you want. Check out the Klein CL1300 or CL2300. They are also shorter meters.

Cuz I do like the heads being plugged into it as a function.
And I always have liked tinkering with stuff to make them better.
I'm actually working on a polyurethane mold that will house the leads, and have a magnet inside of it.
A magnet shouldn't affect a digital multimeter. Analog though is a whole nother story.
But I've done several tests with the meter, then again with a magnet pressed against and that confirmed it has no affect.
And maybe if anyone's interested I will sell em and make a few bucks.
Though its taking a little longer than I planned cuz the black screws in the back are too short, I need them about a 1/2 inch longer to be able to connect the mold, but I can't find the type/thread of screws they used anywhere. So I have to get 4 of those 1st
I just don't like to complain about stuff if I'm not trying to do something to correct it. Cuz then complaining is a waste of time.

I don't remember ever seeing Fluke recall meters when they were USA made. But as that ends, the recalls will increase.

Ya china sux. But that's the card we are dealt. I paid about 350 for my fluke 376 and I love it. With that said I could have got the amprobe navigator series clamp meter for like 150 bucks. I plan to give one a try if I ever find myself in need of a new meter. If I was in the market I would probably buy that one and use it as my day to day meter. But save up and have a high end fluke 28 or maybe a 289 in the truck

"A production issue has led to a potential safety issue where the meter may not withstand the energy of transient overvoltage, which could cause the meter to explode or experience arcing that could put the user at serious risk of harm."“If You Can Dodge A Wrench You Can Dodge A Ball”
