Yes, they are neat but.....I find myself not too trusting of a digital readout for some reason.
Dont tell me you still use a Sperry Snap 8 or an RS-3 Amprobe.
And I hope you dont drag out the 260 Simpson, model six or even the model seven when your doing your low voltage work.
If you work in this field, I am sure you use a Fluke. And if you dont use Fluke, you at the very least use Fieldpiece.
And they're all digital.
Come on ..... your pulling our leg, right!?
And if you tell me you carry a "Wiggey" .... oh well .... I give up.
NO, that's not what I mean LOL
What the beegeebees is a Sperry 8, some kind of antique? I'm only 25, I don't know those old thingies.
Yes, all my meters are digital, just not my refer gauges. I just wonder what bad compressor valves would show up like on a digital readout. The numbers would be all over the place and hard to read would be my guess. I would love to try a set of digi-cools though to see.
But on a funny note, my boss still uses an analog readout multi-meter, it's the crappiest lookin' thing, you wouldn't believe it (ofcourse he don't do s**t anymore). Oh, well he does stop into the office for an hour per week or so to make sure we're still funding his retirement .

There are 3 ways to do anything in life; Good, Fast, Slow: You can pick any 2.
I have a J/B Industries SH-31N superheat/subcooling gauge tie wrapped to my center hose near the manifold. Have a swivel tee on both the high side and low side. I use it everytime I check a charge. I'll have to post a pic of my setup. $150 or less as I remember. This is my third or fourth season and it works flawlessly. Constantly updates superheat or subcooling. Comes preset for R22 and has a key that connects to the side for R410a. Flawless. I wouldn't be caught without it.
