@Elizabeth: ...so height and width are a bit larger than the Jacar one but it's thinner...

We will have to compare notes about things like "look and feel" when they arrive...

That is rather tasty -- but it's $36 from Amazon, which seems a bit steep considering the price tag of the JayCar offering...

Why don't you get one and let us know which is better value? (I am happy to spend your money!).

Seriously though I would like to know how well the Jaycar ones perform. We have had subcontractors who used non-name brand meters only to find that they stopped working at inopportune times and then called us in to try and debug why the product didn't work. Plugged in a Fluke and the measurement was fine.

The Tenma multimeter is

110 x 58.2 x 10.8mm

so height and width are a bit larger than the Jacar one but it's thinner and was in stock at Newark so I could order it when I ordered the Duratool kits...

@Elizabeth: I also got one of these multimeters...

What are the physical dimensions of the multimeter? Thus far, I haven't found anything smaller than the one David suggested from JayCar.

@Wnderer: Does the need for spudgers actually come up in your travels? Do you really do impromptu tear downs?

Well, not yet, but then I never had any travel spudgers -- now that I have, you should be very afraid...

@_hm: One way to mitigate this is to get mutliple of this knives and gift it to persons you love most.

What? Give my wife a very sharp knife? I think not LOL. I also have the gun safe in our house set up that only I know the code (call me a scardy-cat if you will LOL)

But I knwo what you mean -- When I went to Norway a couple of years ago to give the keynote at the FPGA Forum, I took three of these knives to give as gifts for the guys that had helped me out. I think they liked them.
