August Newsletter 2012 - Instruments for the Home and your DIY Dad

W hat’s that I see? Is it green shoots on trees and blue skies on the horizon?  The first inklings of spring are upon us.  To get you in the mood for getting some jobs done around the house we have information on "For the Home" & "DIY Type" meters and also a few tricked out instruments which would make any Dad happy on Father’s Day.

We have had a huge response to our Facebook page, with a lot of new members it is really turning into a hub for all things instrumentation.  We are regularly posting helpful hints about how to look after your meters as well as profiling some of the more unusual enquiries we receive.  Our Facebook page is also a great place to have any technical questions answered.  You can join the group yourself here.

Remember; if you have any questions regarding tests you need to conduct or specific instrumentation please give us a call.  

Until next month...
