Richard writes “You asked to hear about things that can easily be repaired. HP now ‘Agilent Technologies’ has a DMM (Digital MultiMeter) that is built like a rock yet it can easily be repaired. As well is very accurate. That’s the 34401A. The service manual is easily found on Ebay and these meters ‘used’ hold there value very well, unlike some items that drop in value as time goes on. With these meters you almost ask your self why buy new when used is just as good. Check them out on eBay and the internet and they sell for roughly the same amount, $700 vs new at $1,100.” Link.
