Cheap multimeter stand

Cheap multimeter stand

If you do hardware hacking and need to build circuits up for various projects.  Having a multimeter is an essential tool.  However trying to read one of these,  when flat on the desk is very difficult, it is even more difficult if you try and prop this up on something.   The expensive solution is to buy a more expensive meter with a stand on.  For those of us on a limited budget I found what could be a cheap solution.

Poundland sell wooden mobile phone holders.   This works perfectly as a stand for a small multimeter.

The angle this is at is perfect for reading,   the stand can also be taken apart as it is only 2 bits of wood,  and stored or put in your parts box for easy transportation.

Hope this helps fellow hackers out there.
