Another tool that a repairman must have to do the job properly is a multimeter. There are some jobs that can be diagnosed without it, but there are also a whole lot of jobs where having a meter is essential. It can prove continuity and save money over throwing parts at a problem hoping one of them will provide a fix. For years, a popular inexpensive, yet rugged meter has been the UEI M110A analog multimeter.
Another multimeter being featured this week is the DM10T. Like the M110A, this meter will serve you well for all of your multimeter needs. Featuring a digital display, you will get readings that are more precise than the older analog units provide. In addition, this meter also can be used for reading temperature. It is marketed as an economy model, so the price is right too.
Another very popular item we carry from Sensible Products is not really a tool per se. It is however, very handy. EMF-1 is pretty nifty flashlight. The head (the part with the light) can be extended and bent to shine light into the tightest of corners. A side feature, but a very useful one is that the head is also magnetized. Imagine that you dropped a screw, it rolls into a shadowy corner, where it is both hard to see and hard to reach. The flashlight can show you where the screw fell. With the magnetic head you can pic the screw up as well. Time saved is money saved which will make this "tool" pay for itself pretty quickly.
