Electrolytic Tester

Firstly, we will describe the `add-on` version for the 5x7 Display as this is the cheapest version and, quite frankly, it only deserves a few dollars as a piece of test equipment. It`s `all the rage` to have an Electrolytic Tester for servicing equipment and yet I have serviced over 36,000 appliances without one. Possibly it took me a long time to realise electrolytics have the capability of drying out because old-style electros were inherently very reliable and, of-course, they were not old when the equipment was being repaired.

Now . . . it`s not impossible to live without one. All you have to do is replace all the electros in a faulty piece of equipment, then turn it on and see the results. Charles had a stereo amplifier in for repair recently and he started at one end
