This is quite a nice meter. It's bright and easy to read. There's a big slide-switch
on the side which is the high-low scale switch; it's spring-loaded so you have to
hold it to stay in Low, and then it flips back. The meter scale is on a roller so
when you go to Low, the scale changes appropriately.

value the needle is pointing to, then turn the dial until the pointer meets up with
