Agree completely and was surprised when I discovered that his site is still available. http://chemelec.com/Some members will remember Chemelec - Gary, who passed away, seems like a few months ago, but I bet it's a couple of years .. .. he was a great bloke !

He showed me this and I had intended to build it but not yet got around to it; Knowing Gary's designs I'm sure it will work well .. .. .

Thanks.A milliohm meter is a handy benchtop tool for measuring small electrical resistance values. In this article, Mark Driedger details how to build a microcontrollcircuitcellar.com
A milliohm meter is a very handy piece of test equipment. Most hand-held multimeters cannot measure low resistances and bench meters that can, are usually quite expensive. [barbouri] has shared det…hackaday.com
For info and depending on the accuracy you need, the Peak ESR70 meter reads low value resistance to two decimal places, eg. 10 mOhm increments - and it's a very useful device for checking capacitors, the main reason I got one.
Looks like a great device; just more pennies than I can justify for something that might get used twice a year.
Interesting point!does it work OK then on wirewound resistors?
I don't have a large selection of low value wirewounds, but I've found three:
0.22 10% = 0.28
1R0, no tolerance = 1.34
1R5 10% = 1.82
As a comparison, a one ohm metal film 1% reads 1.00
It does appear to read somewhat high on wirerwounds.
