« on: July 27, 2013, 01:42:09 PM »

I originally purchased this meter at least 20 plus years ago .Its been dropped,lost,found , etc and finally after many years I decided to buy another one .Won this on ebay for $40 .Its great for working on 120V appliances .You can tell how much an current an ignitor draws ,if the defrost is working on a fridge etc etc ,many many uses .Its my favourite meter and I really have lots of them (my wife says too many ).

I just have my Maytag watt meter and use it a lot, but never seen one with that many options.

Nice meter,  I've been around a long time but never saw that Robinair meter.    I still have a robinair tester for refrigerant temperature's - 3 leads to hook up for HVAC>      Would have bought one of those if I had seen one.
