    The newer Chuck's are much better, I'd contact Milwaukee and see if they'll replace yours.

    Not trying to change your mind, but new sman 380/480 are a far cry from the old smans. For that matter so is the YJ P51-870 and others. If you had trouble, I'm sure FP would have replaced them

    I can't speak to the failure rate of FP to Fluke. I've had 5 FP meters, and no failures. I gave three away to kids in school, (and it allowed me to get the latest meters), and they are all working...

  6. Anyone using UEI DL429 or DL489 clamp meters

    I've got some credits coming and was thinking about a backup meter for my working partner. We're kind of curious about UEI meters, not having used one, long term, since the DL389, which was a really...
