    Extech has a nice True-RMS multimeter for about $80 bucks right now.

    people people
    all of you are missing the great tool ever
    With this tool you can move mountains
    you can Unearth the dead
    you can remove and pair of panties with ease
    you can drive all most forever
    you can do all these thigns and more with BEER

    I wouldnt be where I am today if it wasnt for beer. I wouldnt have worked in the places I have worked if it wasnt for beer. (I also wouldnt have to work at Burger King if it wasnt for beer) I wouldnt be able to drive straight if it wasnt for beer.

    to my never ending supply of beer I wouldnt do a damn thing

    I gotta throw this in, since we're talking about tools:
    THE GREATEST TOOL IN THE WORLD (except for previously mentioned, beer) IS THE SNAP-ON RATCHETING SCREWDRIVER!!!

    This thing is the bomb! It's pricey at $48, but well worth it. I never felt this way about a screwdriver before. They tried to take it from me at the airport, and I was considering walking from Boston to Pittsburgh rather than surrender my screwdriver! Fortunately for me and my screwdriver I got to check that bag and keep my screwdriver.

    You gotta check this thing out. It's no normal screwdriver. www snapon com part number SSDMR4B.
    So far:
    M10000 Nehemiah, 1Gb RAM, Opus 90w PS, Buffalo Tech WLI2-USB2-G54, 160 Gb HDD, GlobalSat BU-353 GPS, iGuidance, Zippy EL-610, Panasonic CW8123B Slim Slot CDRW/DVD, 10" Lilliput, Sony XA-300, Sony CDX-MP30 Head, OBD-II

    I'll second the Snap-On screwdriver. I've wanted one for years, and finally got one this year for christmas. For the price, tho, might not be a necessary tool for a novice. But verry nice.

    Eh, while I'm posting, I prefer the strippers tom refers to as the "Bad" ones. I feel I get much more control from those than any of the fancier strippers I've used.
