    My old Fluke 8024A thinks a charged NIIMH cell (1.2V) is supplying
    15V, and a near-dead 9V batt is at 52V (!)
    Their new DMM's are priced a biit too high for me..

    Does anyone have an idea what Fluke charges to fix these old meters?

    Any suggestions on a good replacement (under $100) that might have
    some additional featues?

    They probably won't fix it at all. They ran a promotion about 2 years ago
    that gave you a nice discount for trading in an 8024 (now discontinued), but
    that expired. I think the 8024 came out in about 1978, so that model is
    about 25 years old by now! However, if you call their service center (check
    their web site for the number, depending on your geography) they will be
    very pleased to discuss repairs. In general, repair rates for current
    products aren't bad, obsolescent products are high, and obsolete products
    are on par with replacement.

    Go to www.tequipment.net and pick out something you like. In general you get
    what you pay for, and you can get a new Fluke comparable to yours for about
    $120, but if you want to stay below $100 there are many, many choices.
