There is much more to come to this section in the future, it is currently being redesigned.
When working on that do it yourself home improvement wiring project a good meter is essential for getting the job done right and finding any problems that may pop up. Every homeowner should have one to check problems that come with home ownership.
To insure that you get correct readings you should purchase a quality meter and not a piece of junk that may fail and not give the correct reading.
Recommended Electrical Meters & Testers.

Current measurement 20A (30 sec. Momentary, 10A continuous)
TL75 Hard Pont Test Lead Set; Resistance, Continuity & Diode Testing
CAT III 600 volt safety rated
LoZ: low input impedance prevents false readings due to ghost voltage
Fluke 337 Clamp Meter
Top-of-the-line True RMS clamp meter measures AC/DC current to 999.9A and voltage to 600V, ohms, motor start-up current, frequency, min/max, capability and large backlit display. Small body and jaws fit into tight places. Display hold button keeps measurements on the display. Auto shut-off maximizes battery life.
Digital Clamp-On Ammeter
Digital clamp-on ammeter. Measures AC current up to 800 amps with 3 percent (ACA) accuracy without breaking the circuit. Also measures AC/DC voltage, resistance, frequency, capacitance, continuity and diode. Peak hold and data hold for measuring "in rush" current. Display is a backlit, extra large 4000 count LCD screen. Also includes belt holster, molded rubber holster, test leads and K-type thermocouple. Category III - 600 volt.
Professional True RMS AC/DC Clamp Ammeter
Clamp meter measures up to 1000 amps AC/DC. Features built-in non-contact infrared thermometer with laser pointer. 8 to 1 distance to spot ratio. Measures up to 518 F (270 C). Min/Max/Peak 1.0% accuracy. Uses 9V battery, not included. Includes test leads and belt holster.
Autoranging Digital Clamp Meter (GCM-221)
Measures AC current up to 600A and AC voltage up to 600V
Measures resistance and continuity
Autoranging feature selects proper range for function
For conductors up to 1" diameter
Data hold feature retains values
2 AAA batteries included
Fluke Volt Tester
An easy to use AC voltage tester for the home owner to the electrician. This can detect voltage from 90V AC to 600V AC without the use of metal contacts.
It will quickly test for energized circuits and defective grounds. It is perfect for figuring out why those holiday lights won't work. When it glows you know there's power in the line.
Circuit Breaker Finder
3-way tester - circuit breaker finder, circuit tester and GFCI receptacle tester. Variable sensitivity adjustment. Two housings attach for convenient storage. Includes required 9V battery
