  • good tachmeter

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    its the first time that i by tachometer and it was very exciting experience for me. i could finally check the speed of my wireless drill speed and my provisional drill turning speed.
    i have setup the professional drill to 1000RPM and the meter show me 1007rpm which i am sure that its accurate. i have also measure my wireless drill ( makitta) that should have turn in 1500rpm and i got a read of 1020rpm max!! and i have two of them and they both gave me the same measure. so i guess that my drill is getting old...

    Cons:

    i try to measure on a 4 cm wheel and it was not easy. The smallest wheel that I could make a read was 3.5cm smaller then that you need to use some creativity.

    OtherThoughts:

    they supply some reflector tape with that ( maybe 1 meter) . it could be nice if they would sell it also in separate in DX. i don't know where it could be bought elsewhere. it uses 9v battery!! and it was quite hard hooking it up. That connector is in a bad quality.
    the way it works is quite strange - only when you press the "test" button it gives you the read. sometimes you would like to have your fingers free and its quite hard to navigate like that.

    Bottomline:

    Do the job quite nice. Fits the price. I can recommend it.
