    My 'Old faithful' multimeter has got a split in one of the leads. so i am prepared to retire him to the shed.
    It is a draper expert and has done me proud. Nice and chunky probes good ac/dc scale. good continuity scales. and a dual digital display. the second one was useful because it displayed current via a current measuring forked end.
    Can anyone suggest a replacement.

    This looks ideal for a household starter set - multimeter, voltage indicator and dedicated continuity tester, all in a handy case: http://www.amprobe.eu/de_DE/showproduct/115/Junior-Set/

    All in German, unfortunately, as is the blurb on each product:

    Voltage indicator: http://www.amprobe.eu/de_DE/showproduct/116/2000_α_(alpha)/

    Continuity tester: http://www.amprobe.eu/de_DE/showproduct/481/TESTFIX/

    but it is sold in the UK - the company is now owned by Fluke, and I guess they haven't got all the websites sorted out yet - contact them (http://www.fluke.co.uk) for info on where to buy.

    Right now the English specs are still lurking on the Internet Time Machine from when Beha was an independent company:

    Also see another discussion here: http://www.diynot.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=26282 It's a few years old, so specific model number advice may be obsolete (and prices will be higher), but the generic advice is still sound.
