Hello John T,

I take from your explanation that V X A is still the law. I commend you for your patience, but sometimes it hits home, and makes all worth it doesn't it?. Stay cool, that Texas sun is a mean one!

Thanks Guido, Yeppers fer as I know Power in Watts still = Volts X Amps (or I Squared R) and a motor or other device doesnt create or destroy energy but ONLY CHANGE ITS FORM...... My patience grows thin at time but ya gotta realize its IMPOSSIBLE to explain in a paragraph what takes entire libraries and years of study and experience to comprehend so I don't hold it against anyone who may be electrically challenged. Heck try to make me understand hydraulics or thermodynamics or chemistry or medicine etc AND ID BE OUT TO LUNCH AND TOTALLY IGNORANT so if a person isn't into physics or engineering that's no big deal actually BUT I STILL TRY MY DARNDEST TOO EXPLAIN IT ANYWAY LOL

Yep its hot in the days here in Austin Texas but cools down at nights now in October. I was here one summer but the daughter said I cant come back in summer when its so hot BECAUSE IM TOO HIGH MAINTENANCE what with complaining and making her start the car and AC BEFORE I got in lol

Don't get yer wires crossed Guido man

John T A Texan for a month

Hello John T,

Last time I was in Texas it was pretty hot as I recall. One thing I remember for sure, the have some excellent air conditioners. I had to sleep under 2 blankets! HA! HA! By the way, I'm getting back on using a Simpson 260, So crossing wires is not an option!

Been around 30 years since I messed with an old Simpson 260 I learned to hate them in the navy.

You have to remember in the military a meter gets handed around and about 75% of the time you grabbed the one that the last guy left on the wrong scale and you had a dead battery or he had dropped it and it was way out of cal etc

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeNever knew much about the Simpson 260, did you? There is nothing about leaving it on ANY scale that will drain a battery in it if the test leads are not connected to something & that includes all resistance scales.

Hello jammison,

I got away from the meter in the 80's. I like it because YOU have to decide where to set the dial, and that keeps you thinking. My older one got messed up from the students at school. Now the one I have cost me $10 at a yard sale + batteries,
I use it on the bench only
