Hi all, does anyone know where I can get a test lead for a voltohmyst test meter. It's a screw type female connector.

Cheers
Pat

You may have some trouble finding an original.
They were also used for microphone input sockets a long time ago.
Either modify or manufacture a suitable connector.
Also, my opinion the voltohmyst is not a very suitable or safe instrument for normal fault finding.
Due to the fact that your negative connection is directly connected to earth.

Thanks for the advice JJ. It also makes for a nice ornament, it'll probably stay that way!

Cheers

A lot of Voltohmysts were sold in Oz. They come up pretty regularly in HRSA auctions, swap meets, etc.
