Hi all,

I am taking steps to became sole trade electrician and I am curious about experienced electrician opinion on testing equipment.
I would like to buy new or used instrument from ebay/gumtree for about £200 with calibration certificate for minimum 6 months valid.

What brand and model would you use to test Loop, RCD and Insulation for domestic properties? Please explain what are the positives of your suggested equipment. I at taking under consideration that some instrument would give you exact results, but some with give some values and user has to calculate himself what he needs, I think that I wouldn't mind one of this type as long as it is good quality and reliable.

I was looking at Kewtech KT61, but I was not sure about insulation function for 500V only as I am only considering domestic jobs.

Every feedback is very welcomed, bad and good comments as well
