    Somewhere in South wales to calibrate my fluke in a day.

    Hi, Does anyone from the South Wales area know somewhere I can get my Fluke MFT calibrated while you wait. Around by me the only place I can get it done is where they send it off for a week! Perhaps somewhere in Swansea Bridgend or Cardiff? Thanks in advance for any help.
