Re: Ammeter & Voltmeter's (Where at?)
Original poster: Mddeming@xxxxxxx
It's been a good 70+ years since any hardware stores carried
panel meters. Retail electronic component stores like Arrow,
Lafayette, Allied, Olson, etc. disappeared a generation
ago.(ca.1970-1980) Only "Radio Schlock" remains at the local retailer
level and they focus mostly on appliance sales. Some of tRadio
Shack's bigger stores may have a small selection of panel-mount
meters on their parts racks. Do not expect high quality. Other than
that, It's mail order, on-line, surplus stores, or hamfests.
PS It's miter or mitre, but not mitter.

Hi everyone, today I went to Home Depot looking for a mitter saw so I
could finally finish my new coil setup. Found a nice one for $99. I
had also hoped to find an Ammeter for my new externally located RFI
filter setup. To my surprise Home Depot does not carry these. They
only have the test units for voltage and amperage, not the digital or
analog meters that are permanently placed into the circuit.
I was wondering if you guys think any other local stores would carry
them, such as Lowes, True Value, etc..., or is this something that is
usually only found at a specialty electronics store? I know I could
find them online easily, but would rather get them at a local store
so I don't have to waste money on shipping, and wait for the item to
arrive. By the way, any suggested brands? I think I would rather use
an analog meter. A digital meter would make my "not so perfect" RFI
filter setup look even more "not so perfect"... :)
