American or real football?

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

It wasnt santa, but I got a great electronics gift from our former manager at work, he came in today before leaving the state to go work with his brother to say goodbye to everyone

while he was walking around one last time, I said "hey man I have your big multimeter, dont leave without it" and I got in return "I never use it anyway, you take it as a gift, merry Christmas"

I am now the happy owner of a barley used Tektronix DMM914

That is a nice score. If you don't already have one, you might try and find the user manual for it, if not free via the web maybe E-bay for a tree version.

i got the pdf and have been reading though it, though I have used it a few times at work, im not totally new to it  ;D

PS: it also measures frequency and capacitance (yay!)

Omg dude that things friggin nice, it has so many buttons I wouldn't know what to do with 'em


I got a cheapo (45 dollars I think) multimeter that does capacitance and frequency (I chose it specifically for capacitance)

Next thing I would do if I was you is to look up the current protection fuses the meter uses in the manual and get some to have on hand for when you blow one open. Note I said when, not if, you blow a fuse.  You [glow]will[/glow] need replacements and some are non standard safety rated, weird size, etc, so get a head start and get an order off. First check E-bay as the 'official' fuses from the vendor are usually pretty expensive. There is usually two size used for the two different current ranges, say 500ma and 10amp is common.

1A 600v
15A 600v

both fast blow, doesnt say what physical size in the manual I will have to look (and its been a number of years since I have blown a multimeter fuse)

santa got me one post in this forum so that i can put a link in my next post. santa is awesome.

he also got me 8 1000 lumen leds. thats right, 1000 lumens. i might actually be able to blind myself with these.

A new laptop! Kind of.  It's a work one but it means I'll be able to work from home a bit, and it'll also have more software than I have at the moment.

Nice, I need to get some high brightness LEDs white LEDs.

Mine Santa bring me arduino too :D
I have solution !
But it involves spherical chickens in frictionless vacuum...
