    You should probably post this in the General discussion. You will get alot more input there. I personally hardly ever look in Residential.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    Spend as much of your budget as you can on a good multimeter I prefer fluke but there are other brands out there you just don't want any of those

    Cooper makes a decent clamp also but I prefer the Fluke.
