Whether it’s for a holiday or birthday, this Tools Under 30 Dollars Gift Guide Series shows you important, yet somewhat uncommon, tools that any gearhead would want.
Today, let’s talk about Electrical Multimeters.
Many experienced wrench-turners recoil in fear over electrical troubleshooting, be it in the home or on a car. But with a little training and the right tools, it’s actually pretty straightforward.
Enter our friend, the multimeter (AKA a multi-tester).
Way better than a simple circuit test light, a multimeter can give you precise voltage readings, check for continuity, measure resistance in a circuit, and a lot more.
That makes a multimeter handy for tons of jobs, from starter motors and fuel pumps to dishwashers and hair dryers.
Given the versatility of a good multimeter, it’s a no-brainer for everyone’s toolbox.
Multimeters are really easy to use once you get the basics. That makes them a smart gift to give and receive. Better still, there’s a good chance you can find one for under 30 bucks.
