Geek fun

I've had this cable tester for about a year, but a few days ago (the 10th) was the first time I've actually used it.

**Very** handy! Tested a few microphone cables, plus a guitar cable that has been giving me some trouble. The photo shows a red guitar cable being tested.

Runs off a 9V battery. Very easy to use: just plug in a cable to the left side, and the right side of the box. Then turn the knob to test the various connections. If it works correctly, the correct LEDs light up.

Flexible, too: the two ends of the cables don't have to be in the same format. This means that you can test ''adaptor'' cables if you like. And it takes many different formats: the black lines indicate all of the input jacks available, each in a different format.
