Updated above Garage Journal thread with more pictures of the whole assembly.I might have a bit of a tool addiction, so I'll be a frequent visitor to this thread. I built a vacuum sandblaster for cleaning the underside of my car inside the shop without making a huge mess of things (though there will be a small mess).

If it has lasted 9 years and you liked what it did you may not need the best newest high torque product. If you do need new you might find a smaller lighter tool with the same torque and speed as the old one. Lighter weight tools=less fatigue.After 9 years, my trusty Milwaukee M18 cordless drill transmission has decided it only wants to stay in low//Are the new brushless drills that much better? Worth getting?
$282 USD might get you a Fluke meter, and a little more would get you the meter features on your list. I have not shopped meters in a long time. Buy a good one and it should be good until you run over it or drop it off a building. The power injection feature can be done with a piece of wire with a alligator clip and fuse holder.Amazon is almost 1/3 the price of a Power Probe 4 ($95 vs. $282) but I'm wondering what tradeoff there is.
The Power Probe 3 is just power/ground/voltage. It's $120. The knockoff of the Power Probe 3 is $55. The Power Probe 4 knockoff at Amazon has duty cycle and an AC scope but some people fuss about the latency. I may just buy it and try it.Power Probe, best tool on the planet.
Zero experience with knock offs. Only but the genuine tools.
300 seems very steep though unless it is the latest version with the fancy adapter kit. I use the older Power Probe 3 and the shop has the super generic (power and ground only) version.
P/G/V is all I need it for The newest 4 would be OK because it is smaller like the 3. The first version they released was HUGE. Getting into places with it was impossible.The Power Probe 3 is just power/ground/voltage. It's $120. The knockoff of the Power Probe 3 is $55.
