That looks pretty cool too. It's amazing the stuff that's coming out of China at these prices!  :thumbsup:

I was thinking the same !
Nice find by Zog.

my multimeter does the job on resistors and BJTs,  but not capacitance, then there is the problem of inductors that look like  resistors but are not !

Now I wonder what is the difference between the LCR-TC1 and the cheaper LCR-T3  ? ? more googling >>
Come on, you KNOW you want the one with the pretty plastic case and the colour display... You know, the one that re-charges just by poking it with a USB charger and doesn't have its bits exposed - 'Move along Ladies and Gentlemen, nothing to PP3 here!'   :laugh3:

but ...
has produced lots of interesting stuff :thumbsup: thanks for posting :) ,,, especially as I find out that I am not alone in being uncertain about modern colours, they used to be bright and no-question easy-peasy, but I also find myself resorting to the meter just to be sure !


 its bits exposed
nothing to PP3 here!'[/i]   :laugh3:
Oh er ! not sure how to break this news to you ,, but last night I had a look round ebay and pressed the button on one of the exposed ones !
Well I like seeing the inner bits of things ! also I couldnt refuse the 4.58 asking price  :o it is reputed to do inductance as well but no mention of sig.gen.
downside is that it may not be here till 16Jan :(

Most deferably! That's the main use of the device for me now, an assistant for the aged peepers.
I've had my one for a while and, I admit, I didn't look around too much for an alternative supplier... (despite being a mean, tight sporraned Scotsman).....

Yes, Mr Murpy's thread has wandered away from it beginnings, but in a most productive way. That's how a forum should work in my unhumble opinion... Good on ya mods!
