Would you like a cheap oscilloscope? Do you have an Arduino and a LCD display to hand?
I was living in Bangkok, and had resurrected my past interest in electronics, most notably through using Arduinos. After playing about for a few weeks I realised that I sorely needed a digital multimeter (DMM). I already own one, from my days at university, 27 years ago, a M-776 Precision Gold Autorange Digital Multimeter (with transistor tester and display hold) from Maplin. Cost me £20 at the time, which seemed like a lot of money back then (for a pound you could do the week’s shopping, have a night out on the town, entertain some ladies and still have enough money to get the bus home – not any more, eh?), although I seem to remember it being a top of the mid-range model, so it was worth it.
I have still got the box it came in!
Anyway, I digress… so the M-776 was no good to me back in the UK, when I’m in BKK, so I thought that I might as well splash out and get a new one, for two reasons:
Now, which one to buy?
