Hi all,
Well I got ripped off last week, my tool belt with all my hand tools plus a couple meters. Around $450.00. Anyway I had a Solenoid voltage tester that I really liked and I want to replace it but I can't remember the manufacturer! seems like it said "Roberts" or "Peters" or something like that but I never paid much attention. Funny how you can use a tool for years and never really take a good look at it. It was red and about 6 inches long by about 1.5 x 1.5 square. It fit in my belt perfect and was easy to use with a place to hold a probe in the center. Flat probes to fit receptacles without those pesky sliding protectors like Wiggys have. It was a gift from a long lost brother in law who worked in a copper mine, and I think that's where he must have got it.
If anyone knows the brand I would sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Brian

P.S. Keep your stuff locked up GOOD.

Thanks Caselec, thats it. I went to their website and got the 800 number, called them and turns out one of the local wholesalers has them. Now I'll be able to finish replacing what I had, although I look like a rookie with everything all brand new.
