Get a Fluke meter?

Everyone knows that Fluke makes the best electrical test equipment, so now is the time to buy one and get entered in a drawing for a new Airstream.

I'm not a dealer, just happened to see this promotion.

If I entered and won, I'm afraid it would just be a fluke.

we always joke about flukes at work. they seem to be a bit erratic in high current fields.

simpsons are the best. built like anvil and highly guarded by those who have them.

more like a kazillion amps!

serious for a moment, the flukes are a good meter and seemingly rugged. however, in my field false zeros are not tolerated.

that is why the simpsons are highley prized an not let out of one's sight.

my favorite feature is the meter mirror that allows for a accurate reading without parralax on the needle.

Ahhhhhh, YES!........................ANALOGS!!!!!

I fondly remember the HUGE Simpson meter I had as a kid when I was building science fail projects involving high voltage power supplies for Lasers.But that was a good number of years ago. Wonder what ever happened to that meter ???????????????

I've got a Triplett 630 that I acquired a long time ago. I've never seen the need for anything else. I chuckle when someone quotes 121.33 volts as a power line reading; 3 digits are quite good enough for field work. Seriously, though, Simpsons and Tripletts have long been the field standard. The John Fluke company has long been a lab standard manufacturer, building good stuff.
regards

The facts are in, and the results are indisputable. Fluke is the only company currently running a drawing for a new Airstream.
