A place called C&S Sales; 1245 Rosewood Ave.; Deerfield, Illinois; phone
(708) 541-0710 has digital meters that will measure capacitance starting
at around $60.00 ( fully assembled). They have one model digital LCR (
also fully assembled ) for $75. I have several of their meters and am
quite satisfied with them.
