Thread: My favorite tool

  1. #1

    My favorite tool

    That favorite tool will always be a generic analog VOM which I have dragged around with me for several decades. When I paid $20 for my analog VOM, the least expensive digital meter was well over $200.

    Yes, digital meters are great, but there are instances where the analog is still necessary or at least favored:
    Can you see that a voltage is constantly fluctuating/oscillating with a digital meter? No, the digital meter will only give you momentary instantaneous values. Can you trace connections on a PCB quickly with a digital ohmmeter? I just connect one probe to a terminal somewhere and I can see the needle twitch out of the corner of my eye when I hit it's other end contact as I slowly rake it across multiple (such as all 60 contacts on an IC) terminals.

    All of the components inside this meter are discreet and spread out over a large board, so if I burn out one divider resistor it's easy as pie to replace.
