Hi Taplers,

Here I go again, We have the old Keithley 168's, and, now the new BK
Precision 2831D, both which invite a "labor of hatred and anger" as they
require that the meter be partly disassembled in order to replace the
current fuse(s) - and the students blow a lot of them.

I do not want the "opportunity" to build external meter-protecting fuse
boards, instead I believe that meter-makers should get the message about
what we need. Surely with thousands of schools across the country using
digital multimeters it should be practical for some meter maker to
manufacturer what we need.

As you will see I am cc'ing makers and distributors of meters whom I know
about - but that is not many. My request is that we "impact" as many meter
makers and manufacturers as possible with this information, once and for
all, so that within a few years we will be able to buy meters more usable in
student labs. Could you please forward this e-mail to any meter makers and
meter distributors you know about.

Many thanks for any efforts,

Bill Norwood
