    Although there is no longer a multimeter for $3.00 on HFT's website, I did find one for $4.99 (cost probably went up since the post):
    7 Function Digital Multimeter

    I own one similar to that one and it works fine. Hope this helps!
    Cheers and Happy :vapor:!

    When my atties seem to stop working I just put new batteries in my Reo and if the atty still dose not heat up at all ..I assume it is dead...and i throw it away.

    actron multimeter

    "... there is a pot for zero adjust for the ohms scale on the left-hand side of the meter, just under the meter movement. These "old" style meters are quite functional, and in cases where there is trouble reading voltages, like where there is a PWM regulator driving a digital meter nuts, this one will probably work fine."
