Re: [TCML] Shinola meter, parts wanted or for free distribution -review

Well said Hank. That is exactly it's purpose. It was replaced with the "exact same" resistor as both Flukes were the same model and vintage (and I of course checked the resistors against each other to be sure). The point is that old meters that are dead are not necessarily useless. If you happen to favor a particular meter and kill it, then just buy the same meter again, but don't throw out the old meter. It may make a stupid mistake not such a big deal. Not in every case, but maybe at least once, you get to fix it since the processor is functioning correctly.

"fusible" resistor. Be sure you replace it with the same kind for safety's
