For those members where English is not their first language The expression look a gift horse in the mouth is looking a critical way at something that has been given to you.
I received a DMM as a participation gift in a design challenge. I have noticed since using the meter that the test leads coming out the bottom are stressed at the connection point. I'm concerned the leads are on a path to breaking. I'm thining of taping them up the back of the unit to remove the strain on the ends that exit the bottom. Does anyone have any experience on a possible solution to the problem?
This is not meant as a critique of the device. I appreciate it is not an expensive meter. It was a gift and I won't be out anything if it breaks. I just don't have a throw-away mentality when things don't work. Maybe an investment on my part can extend the life of the item.
Any thoughts. This is only the third meter I have owned. None of the others have this cable assembly.
