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, 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.

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!
