Right to first broken 121GW meter on sale
« on: December 18, 2018, 01:38:30 pm »
Hi,

I hereby claim the right to buy the first broken 121GW meter that shows up here on the forum. :D

Although, come to think of it, with the audience here, that meter will probably be BBER (Beyond Beyond Economical Repair), if declared "broken".

Huh, I have one, not sure I want to sell it :). It's not physically broken, it just have corrupted calibration after some play with firmware.

What about buying an unused one? I have one meter that I bought by mistake, I want to sell it... at good price :)

Trying to resist the urge for such a meter.
Of course, it's not working. I'm a weak soul...

How do you buy a multimeter by mistake?

Dave's website was overloaded, when I tried to add DMM to the cart, the page didn't load. So I pressed F5. When I did checkout two DMMs appeared in the cart, but because the site worked very poorly I decided to make the order anyway and left a comment to remove one from the order. Later I decided that two decent DMMs are even better than one contacted support to leave the order unchanged (strangely enough I never received any communication about either message). At the end received two.

Now I want to sell at least one as it doesn't fit the role of "dmm to go" (for me).

Just to say the "claim" is still on: anyone willing to part with their broken 121GW, I am here to "alleviate the pain".  :)

Nah .... He's just channeling Mark Fraser and the spirit of Pierre Omidyar.

That's a bit too subtle for me (and my Google skills).
I could find reference on Pierre, but not sure of Mark (could only find a couple of footballers and a politician).

Yes. I'm overloaded with meters (don't compare with TEA people, though), and I backed it just for the support. PM me if interested.

First sale on eBay: Broken laser pointer.
Pierre listed it.
Mark bought it.

Mark would fit right in here.  :-+

Just to clarify: blueskull here is referring to working 121GW's.
Still looking for someone with a sick 121GW meter, if one exists.

Ah, interesting.
Thank you for the educational piece of info!
Indeed, Mark fits the typical profile here.  :)
