I found 2 auctions (ending 9pm EST Friday 5/24) and any info on these items would be GREATLY appreciated before I bid on these items.

I need a multimeter that is accurate and it doesn't need to be "portable" (handheld), even though this Fluke 37 is considered portable, lol. There is a lot of 5 working units for a great price and was thinking of ordering them as I could use 2 or 3 and maybe someone on here might want one or 2. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with these. I have some $40-50 portable multimeters from Lowes (Southwire brand) but I get some questionable readings, so I'm hoping the Fluke might be more accurate.

It takes a 9v but I can modify it to accept input from a regulated 9vdc powersupply (wallwort like or maybe a little more accurate).

The same place has some BK Precision 20MHz Model 2120 (2 of them) for a great price as well, but I don't know much of anything about scopes, so this will be my learning scope. This ISN'T the 2120B or 2120C which IIRC are upgraded to 30Mhz and maybe some other features. I'm wondering if this is a good scope for someone to learn how to use features on a device like this.

I know the Fluke's come with authentic Fluke leads/probes but IDK if the scope has any, and IDK what kind of leads are used with scopes..

There is a thread in the Marketplace forum with a little different information

@Bertus Could you delete this thread b/c I have a similar one in the Marketplace forum. I spoke to @Wendy about this and she told me how to tag these, IDK if I did it correctly, so I'm sorry if this wasn't correct.
