    I am using a fluke 77 Series II and I like alot ... But the other day I got a Fluke 333 AC clamp meter and it works really good but I have no use for one and I was looking to sell or trade it to buy another meter ...So my questions is what should I go with what I can sell the Fluke 333 for ?




    Thanks

    It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. A good way to find out what someone is willing to pay for it, is to put it up on eBay with no reserve. Coincidentally, that is also a good way to sell it.

    I would pay 50 for it,, but keep that fluke 77,, that's the most reliable meter you will ever have.. I use mine everyday at work and have for the last 8 years.. the only thing ive ever had to do to it is replace the fuse for the amp testing part of it... damn good meter

    I am really getting into electronics and learning alot but I am not sure a higher count meter is necessary with electronics ???
    Oh I am going to keep my fluke 77 II but I am going to sell the Fluke 333 clamp meter to buy another meter I think ... I was looking at the Uni T UT 61E with the 22,000 count meter but not sure if I really need it ..

    I'd recommend holding off on buying equipment until you can identify a specific need for it that justifies the price you are going to pay for it. Otherwise you will end up with a bunch of toys that don't do what you need and not enough money to buy the toy that will.

    I know but I really getting intro electronics and using on meter is a pain .. I would love to get a fluke 87 but I am not sure I could afford it.. I am trying the next meter below the fluke 87 without the extra features but not sure what that is ???

    There are lots of meters in the $10 to $30 price range and most are just fine for hobbyist-type use. By one or two of the cheap ones until you determine specific features that you need.
