High voltage !!! They don't change meters! This is dangerous stuff, the training alone cost a few grand and you need years of experience till you are allowed to do high voltage stuff. Not to mention how much you have to splash out for the kit.

HV and meter fitting are worlds apart.

Looking at your past posts you don’t seem to know what you want to do.
What is wrong with gaining more experience in what you’re doing now? At 18 years old there will be very little experience gained so far.

I've occasionally thought about having the change, but the surgery puts me off.
Sometimes it's best to stick with what you know or are familiar with.
