Ready to Ride

2 Apr

I just got a new multimeter; one of those necessary tools that makes playing in the garage even more fun. I finally got fed up with cheapies that aren’t reliable or crap out just when you are in the middle of a problem. So I decided to bite the bullet and spend some cash to get a good professional unit that is hopefully robust. I lucked out at a local electrical supply company where they were selling some display units at cost; so bought it for less than half price.

Last fall I removed the battery but it was stored in the cold garage, and a few days ago brought into the warm basement and put on the Deltran Junior battery tender.  Of course I wanted to check on my battery condition before installing.  The Vee started up perfectly. Hopefully I’ll get out in a day or so for a short ride.

 

Whoopee.

It’s Thursday and I got for a ride. Not far, but it felt so great to crank the throttle. It’s been such long winter and finally it’s over.

    I work in a calibration lab, so I get more excited than most people over a nice multimeter…haha. I LOVE Fluke, but they’re expensive. I’ve actually never seen a Klein meter, but their pressure gauges and torque wrenches seem like good quality. You’d be surprised at how many companies buy junky $20 meters at Canadian Tire and then spend $80 each year to get them calibrated.

    Enjoy your spring ride…we’re currently digging out from under 37cm of snow 😦
