Hello sparks. I'm looking at ordering my first MFT. It's still early days as a 2nd year apprentice, but I'm looking to practice rigging up some circuits in my Dad's garage and test them (sad I know). It's mainly to get familiar to the testing process and to see how the theory proves itself in the field.

I'm fed up waiting to learn this part of my college course and trade, and I want to crack on and learn as feel the pace could be picked up.

As this tester will be a Christmas present for me, via my Dad no real budget has been set, but I still want to avoid rushing into spending unnecessarily high.

After reading several threads on this site and other Electrical forums, I'm either going to get the Fluke 1652 or Kewtech KT64, but have a couple of questions on these.

Basically, if I order a Fluke 1652 of an internet retailer, would I be likely to get the original leads (dodgy I've heard/ weak croc clips etc)where I will have to phone Fluke to get replacements (Robin I've read) or would I be getting these straight from the box?


And if I'm likely to get the original leads, would I be better off purchasing Kewtech G7 leads/accessories as I've heard good about them?

Could someone tell me if the following Kewtech products are compatible with the Fluke tester?

http://www.kewtechcorp.com/products/leads_accessories/ACC020.htm

http://www.kewtechcorp.com/products/leads_accessories/ACC064SP.htm

http://www.kewtechcorp.com/products/leads_accessories/ACC064.htm

http://www.kewtechcorp.com/products/leads_accessories/KAMP13.htm

http://www.kewtechcorp.com/products/leads_accessories/ACCEP5.htm

I don't think the last two are 'G7 compliant' but would they still be compatible?

Many thanks for anyone's help here, and Merry Christmas to all you!
