Wire stripper & DMM from chat?

by 6sigma on Sun Apr 04, 2010 4:44 pm

Last night's "Ask an Engineer" showed an Extech DMM. Does anyone know which model? Also, during the building of the 7805 regulator, a wire stripper was used. Does anyone know the make and model of it?

Thanks.

I believe that the DMM she uses is the same one that is in the store.

The wire strippers are really a generic item, they are not in the store - but any local hardware store worth it's salt will have them available.

Or there is a pair of adjustable strippers in the store: http://www.adafruit.com/index.php?main_ ... cts_id=147

George, thanks for the reply, but I'd love to get a bit more information. The Mastech DMM in the store isn't the Extech model she was using. The generic strippers are much less expensive and effective than whatever tool she had in the video.

Sorry to be a nuisance, but I'm hoping to invest in good tools. Again, thanks.

Here's a picture of both meters from last night's chat: http://www.flickr.com/photos/adafruit/4489872422/
Ladyada was using the Extech with a thermocouple probe, so it was probably an EX330: http://extech.com/instruments/product.a ... prodid=277

The wire strippers aren't quite visible in that pic, unfortunately.

Thanks. I think you're right.

I've also looked more carefully, and I'm guessing the strippers were one of the Klein models.
