For those that do not enjoy wiring

Post by redial »



I came across this item which may have promise in tracking down those wiring imps that sometimes play havoc. The price listed is AUD, so it is probably less for those able to afford the big USD.

Get find. Don't mind wiring issues, but like to get to the root of the issue sooner than later. On my Xmas list.

I had added this to my toolbox awhile ago. Haven't had a chance to use it, other than testing a few wires for continuity.

I have one of these that is sold as an under-ground dog fencer signal chaser. I never thought of chasing a wire issue on the wing with it. Haven't needed it yet but its in my memory of tricks now!

Considering I bought a multimeter and after using it for 10 minutes trying to find a fault with no readings at all , only to discover that I had left the plastic covers on the probes ,I don't think this is for me :-)
