+1 on your link. It's a simple guide which most folks will understand. My Dad always carried a couple of lengths of wire, a battery and a light bulb (12v or 6v) which he would use to test a circuit, it's what I resort to if I'm in the middle of nowhere and need to check if a circuit is good. Don't work in every situation, but can be a life saver. Sometimes just having a spare piece of wire does the trick.jkersh1 said:Too many engineers. Buy a $2.99 meter from Harbor Freight and read this
