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
