Useful Milliohm Meter

Scullcom Electronics has a very useful milliohm meter project on his YouTube channel, now we have a use for all of those 5-digit meters on Ebay:

Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.

Now after someone else started the thread I'm wondering... why tantalums (and why not std elcos?)

If he's like me he will have a bag of 250 that were purchased off Ebay.

This is one of my favorite electronics-related YouTube channels.  Right up there with Alan's.

He deals with practical, useful circuits and (to me, at least) seems to go into just enough detail.  A lot of other channels skimp on details or get too bogged down in them.

Here is another milliohmmeter optimized for finding short circuits: https://hackaday.io/project/3635-shorty-short-circuit-finder
I refuse to use AD's LTspice or any other "free" software whose license agreement prohibits benchmarking it (which implies it's really bad) or publicly disclosing the existence of the agreement. Fortunately, I haven't agreed to that one, and those terms are public already.
