Is a $6.99, Tilswall 6000-count Multimeter from Amazon a Tool or a Toy?

For someone who really believes in using quality tools, I buy far too many cheap ones. Case in point: I just bought a 6000-count Tilswall FY8233X multimeter from Amazon for the amazingly low price of $6.99. That’s right, I bought a multimeter with test leads, a carrying case, and batteries for less than the cost of a Burger King Whopper Meal Combo for two deal. … Read More → "Is a $6.99, Tilswall 6000-count Multimeter from Amazon a Tool or a Toy?"

Wine Wi-Fi Finds Fine Vines

Winemaking is an occupation steeped in tradition, to mix my metaphors. Winery websites feature richly sepia-toned photos of rugged Old World types squeezing the soil through their hands, gazing at grape clusters, and extolling their great-great-grandfathers’ foresight in planting head-trained Zinfandel vines with original rootstock in the rich alluvial soil of Napa Valley. It’s enough to drive you to drink.
