    Hey guys. I've just been recently acquiring some tools and soldering equipment, so I was wanting to get a multimeter or something. I want to spend my money right the first time around rather than have save a few bucks for a lesser quality multimeter. Digital or analog? Any advice? Thanks

    Id start with a digital multimeter. Analog meters have their place, but imo for everyday type electrical stuff a digital will do the trick. A good meter (like the Fluke 77) will probably run in the neighborhood of $50-$75, and will last a lifetime. Cheaper meters can be had for $20-$25, but you get what you pay for.

    Check with Sears and Radio Shack.

    Good luck:cool:
  4. Definitely go digital!

    Cool, digital seems like the way to go. Thanks for the info, and true, you get what you put in.
