    Welcome...
    (The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon

    My Grandfather was a Tool and Die Maker, if you need a clampmeter that does everything the SC-77 by fieldpiece is a good one. If you just need to read current, ohms and volts I have the Ideal #61-746 it was less than $90.00 at Loew's it is true rms and reads up to 40 million ohms and is catIII 600volt rated. The fluke 902 is one a lot of guys like, kind of spendy and ohms scale doesn't go very high. Welcome Aboard!

    welcome, you'll need to get that post count up so when you ask a question the replies will mean something to you ( you'll want to ask technical questions in the pro forums)
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Welcome.
    .


    The statement below is my signature and just my overall feeling towards our industry and does not necessarily pertain to you nor this thread.


    There really isn't a legitimate excuse for not doing the job correctly!
