I bought a Fluke 87 around 1994 and had some odd problems with the display (out of warranty of course). Fluke supplied a new display but it would only work for a few weeks before the same thing happened again. It could have been the display driver but it was not something that I could change.

Fluke said they were unable (or unwilling) to repair it so I ended up buying a new 87 Mk 3 o a trade-in with a lifetime warranty which has so far worked perfectly.

Re: Salt & Vinegar?

Just been and found mine, it’s a Fluke model 73. The cables are getting a bit stiffer but then it’s probably only been used once or twice in the last ten years. No real idea when it dates from though or even how I acquired it.
