Here's another, now a bit late, post I wrote five days ago.

You-all's problem is purchasing meters intended for people who know
what they are doing. The proper place to purchase your meters is
from Cenco types. If they don't mfg. them, advise them. I'm was
about to post the suggestion that only two types of meters are
suitable. The research ones -- 61/2 digits, minimum from, e.g.
Agilent. [$1200] * and five dollar ones from Harbor freight.

Just think, 60 of them for the price of a Fluke, and when the fuse
goes toss it in the e-recycle.

* better 81/2 digit 8 ppm [$8k]:

bc has several 4 1/2 digit HP battery supply desk top ones from RAFT
for $15.
