    We got all the major HVAC tool players responding here except Fluke.

    Anybody got a clue on that?

I hate holding a flashlight in one hand trying to turn a terminal screw on a York heatpump A/H while standing on the top rung of an 8' ladder. You have to hold those boards while you do it because York doesn't secure the board to the case. I'm sick of York!
    Milwaukee above all else makes a small, about the size of a pocket digital thermometer, lighted (and very brightly lighted too) ncv voltage tester that sells at The Home Depot for around $20. 50 - 1000 volts ac so no real low (24 volt) voltage detectability though.

    Might be useful for you as you can stick it behind the ear or under a beanie cap and point it versus having to hold a full size flashlight in the hand up on a ladder.

    I used it yesterday on an electrical re-wire of an old 1923 three story home with get this, a *BASEMENT here in Houston. First basement I've ever heard of let alone been in in the 10 years in either trade down here.

    *sub floor mechanical room with a Bryant Evolution system that I was much more interested in versus the 14-3 wire I was pulling.

    Gimmicky is a good word, I thought that about the Amprobe when I first heard of them having swivel heads, but I too can see the usefullness in it having had to check voltage and amps from a hard to see angle, all breaking my neck trying to see. I just feel like one wrong move and I'll snap the head clean off from the meter.

    I'm good with the 77, solid.

    In some parts of the world the natural ambient temperature gets that low!
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
