I bought one for my backup set of tools, had two replaced under warranty and even the third one was wonky but wasn't worth the effort to keep getting replaced, I'll never buy another. Tossed it and got a T5-1000 for a backup. I don't know if I just happened to get hosed with all three coming off a bad production run, at that point I really didn't care. Ideal makes some good stuff, but I've never had any good experiences with testers or tracers made by them and have just written off Ideal in that department.

I bought one of these a few years ago at a government surplus sale for $75. It is a very good scope and has about every function available when it was made in the late 70s. Yes it does not fit in my tool bag.
