Betting I know a really good dude who could turn a few of those out to fit Fluke meter leads. 
You know, to pass out to his buddies.   ;)
I guess I'm not getting why you would want to.  I bought this for my tail bag, for testing when out on the road or trails.  It has a sharp tip that you can poke into insulation and the light comes on to tell you if you have power.  The yellow wire is your negative.  Plugging into a Fluke seems redundant. It already has  feature to tell you if there's voltage.

Probably just likes the idea of a screw in fitting for ground side? It could be handy when troubleshooting as well. Alligator clip often 'falls off' while your moving around

Yea the copper negative part looks to thread into hole.  If it just had a female end i could plug my meter lead into it and not mess w clip jumpers.

Ill get a pic when I get to work on Monday.  As my home fluke has cheapy leads that dont actually come apart to swap out the ends. like my good leads do.

I still don't understand why you would want this to plug into a Fluke or any electronic meter.  This is nothing more than a +/- make the light go on kind of thing.  It tests a line to confirm power.  That's why it works for static timing.

We have an electronics and general 'junk' shop down here,  (Skycraft) It's dead easy to make whatever leads you want. (gold plated contacts with silver plated copper wire, silicon insulation, etc) The ends are standard 'banana' plugs, the screw in part is easy to make with whatever thread you want Silver has best conductivity but copper comes second, both oxidise though. If you need specific threaded ends let me know. Copper is pretty horrid to machine but not impossible. I may make some for myself with 5mm and 6mm thread as it will be a lot more convenient when checking things, took way longer than it should have to re-set timing on the T305 Friday - 500 mile service/check over.  I wish I had thought of making screw in leads 30+ yrs ago when I was doing this full time  ::)

Messing with timing, I thought Id show off my favorite tool for static timing. Its a voltage tester that comes with a threaded cap. The cap shares the same thread pattern as the points cover screw. Makes for an easy time...

Me too.  I get having a lead that screws in, though.  I was confused why get this thing to plug into the Fluke since it doesn't do anything the Fluke can do better.  You can get leads with a terminal connector already.  They also have leads that fit into bullet connectors.

My meter at work has the bullet style leads w ends that can be swapped out for different applications.  I just need a cool copper one w the threads on it that would plug into the leads.  Thats what I thought you had, something similar.  As I didn't notice the little light in it.

I really like the build. I just  bought a cb360 from a guy at work. The backroad/forest service road theme is where I was leaning.  Your fab skills are amazing, mine will not be quite as custom!

Thanks, man. I just sold this one at Mid-O. It was a fun scoot.
