Amp tester

I made a handy little amp tester out of this https://www.harborfreight.com/30-amp-automotive-fuse-circuit-tester-67724.html and a blade fuse holder. Works pretty slick.



12V 30 amps. Cost about $12 with current 20% coupon.

That nice! Cheap, easy, and usable. It won't do your cold cranking starter motor amps, or the glow plugs or the intake air heater, but it'll do most everything else. And a whole lot cheaper than a DC-capable amp clamp.

I made it mainly because I'm going to remake my switch panels this winter and I want to see how much draw is on all of the circuits to see if I can use the switches I like. I've already started a list of some of the various lights see I've made.
