    Anybody recommend good calibration services?

    I don't know if it's just me but the prices of getting testers calibrated has seemed to have gone through the roof. I appreciate the kit isn't cheap, I got a quote for some myself a few years back, but when the guys drop in to do it in the wholesalers I've also seen how long it takes. I've just...

    Trainee Offered a 2nd hand 1730 for 475, no calibration - Worth it?

    As above, images have the unit with minor wear and tear and shows leads & case. Does state it requires calibration - would this be worth the price? I've got no intention on going out doing jobs but I figure I'll be using something at College and this gives me time to learn the unit and it's...

    Do you need a calibration certificate on new equipment?

    I've been looking at buying some new test equipment and have noticed that there is always an option to buy with or without a calibration certificate. (extra cost involved) Surely if the equipment is "brand new" then you shouldn't need it... or am I wrong?
