This thing, because of the very low level of signal used, does not 'turn
on' any semiconductor junctions, so they disappear from its view. That
means you can do a very reliable test while it is in circuit, before you
warm up the iron.

When I took a chance and spent $175 of the tv stations money for it, close
to 20 years ago now, I was initially a little dubious, but that thing has
turned out to be worth at least as much as sliced bread or bottled beer,
and has probably saved me many hundreds of hours of troubleshooting time
since. That, a good temp controlled iron, and a good scope (and the brains
to see what its telling you) are the 4 most indispensable tools a techie
can have. I left out the dvm because everyone has one of those today...

> Btw. the capacitors I unsoldered are broken now, even if they should

You are welcome. I hope I helped.

Cheers, Gene
