    Re: Selecting a Digital Multimeter

    GTC makes a great DMM. I can't recall the price but they are cheaper than most Fluke meters. My GTC model CT8017 consistently got the same readings that some of my classmates did on Fluke meters while I was in marine mechanics school.

    Re: Selecting a Digital Multimeter

    FYI there is a FLUKE in the current sears craftsman club sale flyer for $79.
    FLUKE 81438. Looks pretty basic..but it says fluke so the third decimal on the volt reading must be good.

    (the craftsman club is like an unadvertesed sale, you'll have to ask for the flyer if you dont have one)

    I've been using a snap-on DMM (EEDM 504 B)for 2 years. It's ok,
    Yokogawa (model 732) and fluke are good .

    I strongly recommend buying a Peak voltage adaptor( app 20-50$)too.
    You can mesure CDI output and charge coil output with this apaptor.

    Fluke 88 is the best all around meter for auto repair, I have had mine for years, also have a fluke (77?) didnt cost much does all but like temp, and frequency, rpm. Fluke meters only break if you dont know how to use them.

    $60 bucks....not me!...LOL 10 years ago I bought one from the Harbor Freight catalog for 6 bucks. Still works perfect. I use it for all sorts of auto and home too. They just built a store in my area and had them on sale (no box this time, just a cheap blister pack) for $3.49. Bought 3 more - one in every cat now and one at home!!!

    You could also try Ci Analytics if you're still interested in some innovative multimeters.

    All I see is LARGE lab equipment that would be delivered by a truck.

    May as well add my $.02 now that this is resurrected.
    I'm a metrologist and handle (calibrate) dozens of handheld meters yearly. Most of them are Fluke. I own at least 3. Excellent meters.
    But I've also handled many DMMs of lesser or unknown brands that cost under $50 that equal the performance of Fluke and pass the same accuracy levels without adjustment.

    I have one of those cheap harbor freight DMMs and it's accurate & reliable, within the limits of it's resolution. A $10 meter isn't going to resolve 1mV on the 20V range. And you don't need that for automotive testing.
