That was really useful. Every time I watch one of those tutorials I’m thinking I’ve got the hang of it until a week later when I go to use it . Then I grab the meter full of confidence then I turn it on and then I’m like ‘Doh’ and have to go back to the house and watch another tutorial. Gotta say you sound like you know what you are rattling on about. From experience, the super cheapo meters ain’t brill ;)

Take it one step at a time. Test a battery like an AA or similar on V and see your readings. For ohms turn the dial to the horshoe! and test an old speaker and you will get a reading. If you have it on its highest setting of Meg ohms hold the two leads and you will get a reading of your resistance. and the harder you squeeze the lower the resistance will be.. For current the meter is in series with the load and the red lead which was in the V/ohms socket goes into the highest 10 A (fused) socket. Solder two wires to a car bulb and use that to test for a current reading. Look at more than one video on the tube as some are easier to understand. I watched many many videos and learned how to make curtains for the van. I got what I wanted and I paid less! SoIMG_0633.JPG
