Tool Wish List
« on: March 02, 2013, 08:21:00 AM »
The Fluke 902 HVAC Clamp Meter has been on my wish list for sometime now.

If one of my other meters would just crap out...  :popcorn:

That's a lovely bit of kit but the price is a bit of an ouch, my wife bought me a clamp meter made by a company called Holdpeak, does everything the Fluke does plus Frequency & has Dual backlit displays for about $80.00 it's a lovely bit of kit.

On my wish list would be a decent Analogue Multimeter, mines just about on it's last legs. Mind you i've had it for a long time & it's paid for itself over & over again.

I love tools. I like to wander through the home centers and just admire everything. I am not shy about buying tools for work. As a professional you need high quality dependable tools. Only thing I want now is one of those inspection cameras for looking into walls.

Hi AJ: If you take a look at www.ebay.co.uk & put in the item number: 370477226097 it will show you the uprated C version of the meter, i've got the HP-870B. According to my currency converter it's about $61 US at the moment including Free carriage.

Can't argue with loving tools mate, the only problem i've got is that all the big DIY stores over here sell mostly overpiced junk tools & I like quality tools. The nearest real toolshop to me is over 90 miles away.

 A Pan cake type compressor is on my wish list. Someone stole my home made air compressor I made out of a refrigerator compressor. They had balls enough to remove a small ice box and a broken gas dryer from my back yard and it had a few tools, a nice cast net, and my home made air compressor/vacuum pump.  :tickedoff: Makes ya wonder what the world's coming to when you have stuff getting took from the swamp. >:( Maybe a gater or a snake will bite they asz if they return, which they will.
