    Very nice panel work there, the leather looks great and is certainly unique.

    THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD

    Yep, the original cable had gone all stiff, so they've been re-cabled. I'm also making a new headband but struggling a bit with my sewing skills and getting the pleather to look nice and fit right.

    THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD

    A Daiso store opened up nearby (Japanese dollar store) and I went to have a look. I found these bag hanger things that work quite well as headphone hangers hanging from my bookshelf.

    Pain! :D :) :| :/ :( >:(

    Nothing spectacular has happened to me, just regular DIY wounds. I've slipped and burned myself with soldering irons many times and sliced up my fingers and thumbs with a scalpel a number of times too. These things mostly happen when I'm doing something silly, and my brain/conscience tells me...

    Wow, stunning work, MrClean. I love the way the grain curves in the recessed parts of the Bijou.

    Looking for a new DMM, being wooed by Fluke

    Thank you everyone. Problem solved, I've gone and purchased a Fluke 87-IV. An 87-V would have been more than enough for me, but they're so popular I've seen them going for not much less than the 87-IV, which is a better specced meter anyway. I've seen some go for cheaper but that's uncalibrated...

    Looking for a new DMM, being wooed by Fluke

    Thanks Tangent, I've read some of your articles but I'll have another read and look at the forum links also. I had a look at the U1272A last night and while it does look quite nice, $460 new is a bit of a stretch over what second hand Flukes are available for.

    Looking for a new DMM, being wooed by Fluke

    Thanks for all the comments. And thanks MisterX for mentioning the option of Agilent meters. From what I've seen so far Agilent have been the leaders in the bench meter market whereas Fluke were better regarded, or more well established in the handheld market. I've probably been rushing into a...

    Looking for a new DMM, being wooed by Fluke

    And thanks for the tip about temperature measurement, John. I hadn't thought about it much but that definitely rules out the 177.
