Anyone got one of these yet? I’ve got the older t5 version and the fingers on the end are really handy with ac current detection. The new one supposedly gives you non contact voltage reading as well.

Was in eddies and there was one in a stand on the counter to try out, it wouldn’t work when I tried it so didn’t get one

Any thoughts?

Just tried to quote a reply to you LeeH but it’s started a conversation or something so it’s not showing

Too many buttons on this new forum

Yeah but I clicked ‘quote in conversation’ as I wanted to quote LeeH’s post in my reply to him.

On my phone so may have different options? Will try ‘+quote’ next time I’m feeling adventurous

Ah... nostalgia.
Do you all remember when a penny chew cost.... a penny!

yeh… +quote to quote into a reply post.... "quote in conversation" becomes a private message between you and the other person.
You can also highlight a piece of text and +quote just that part of a post

Like that ^

Regarding Fluke testers. I never liked the name. Seems to say "There might be a voltage there, or there might not.... It'll be pure luck if I'm right"

Disclaimer: Never actually used them. ;)

My names Stu, so I’ve quite often ended up being nicknamed either penny or penny chew.. and yes I’m old enough to remember when they were only a penny. And a Freddo was 10p I think

We'll have the old ones talking about shillings and thruppenny bits in a minute or two....

Or maybe later on... they like to have a lie in at the weekends.

I’m a massive fan of thruppenny bits to be fair
I only go back to 1 pound notes & half pennies. I remember mars bars were 18p & petrol was about 65p per liter. Ooo & knickerbocker glories looked so big lol

I remember way back when we worked on red and black in a t&e, wired in a ring main circuit and everyone had a card of fuse wire in their pockets.

And insulation testers were wind up

my first ever purchase of petrol was 5/- a gallon.that's gallon, not foreign liters. 20 Embassy were 1/10p. a pint of bitter at the local was 1/9p. then again my wages were £6/15/- a week.

Yeh Pete... it was even used in college. “Hold them and I’ll wind the handle slowly, then speed up... see how long you can hold it.”

I got up to pins and needles in the elbows before the dropped out my fingers.

The “bad” kids were at the end of the line to try.... they got full speed straight away.
