I still have my old trusty reliable Analog Simpson 260 VOM I bought back in High School as I recall. In its day it was like a Cadillac and still to this day its my meter of choice. I also have an RCA WV 38A I believe is the model, I prefer the Simpson 260 but the RCA is a decent VOM. Those expensive fancy schmansy digitals are good for a lot of things I reckon, but for noisey, jumpy, spikey tractor DC (Gennys and bouncing and arcing Brushes and carboned up uneven commutators and noisy chattering VR relay contacts etc etc) GIVE ME MY SIMPSON 260

John T Just an old fashion Conservative old scholl kinda guy

I have a Very pricy Fluke With certification that dampens and averages well. And several lesser DVMs that are just not usable on the old machines. My old reliable is a RCA VTVM ! My analog meter is a Tripplet with 4 inch face. Gotta love those old test equipment brands. Jim

I had a Simpson back in the late 60s.
The batteries leaked and ruined it.
Replaced it with a Radio Shack and still have it.
Still have my Sperry amprobe from the early 70s.
