Default Re: How much should one invest in tools to get in the hobby/occasional business?

Don't forget that you need to repair wood and bakelite sometime so it's not just electrical tools that you need. Apart from the obvious, I find a fret saw really useful for cutting 3mm perspex into any shape without chipping it.

The Maplin analogue multimeter discussed in earlier threads is still available direct from china under the brand Proskit. I've got one and use it all the time. You can do a lot with a multimeter and some thinking. Less is more sometimes, but if you want to go a step further, a signal injector/tracer (fault finding) and a signal generator (alignment) would be next in line imo. I'm waiting for a signal generator myself to come up on eBay or FB marketplace within collecting distance.
