Can you replace the holster on a Fluke 175?
« on: May 21, 2022, 11:10:39 am »
I have a Fluke 175 which is still working fine but the integrated holster is torn and peeled off. Do you think the I can replace the holster without spending too much money? Well I just want to make it nice if I can without spending too much. I have more DMM than I need.

I couldn't see a way to do this on my old 179. You could try to buy and entire back enclosure...

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

Nah, the molded-on rubber can't be replaced separately. You have a buy a whole new case.

OK Thanks. The set of front and back cover cost over $100 on Ebay. So I decided to strip all the rubber away and use the meter naked.

Not very clean. I hope I will be able to remove it all later.
