Wait till you start eye balling RMS DMM meters, temp controlled soldering iron, signal generator, 4 input OSCILLOSCOPE (Oooooo, Ahhhhhh), etc. etc.
I've needed a 'scope to get a project off of high-center. It's been more than I wanted to spend, but after listening to this group of 'enablers' <grin>, I eBayed an ex-military Tek 745 and battery pack (I'm afraid it's going to rough service). Unless you get a real deal, something like that will run into some money.
Now if you would care to discuss logic analyzers. . .
Happiness is - positive intake manifold pressure.

to "0" there is not longer any resistance to limit the current.
