Oh, Gee, I just went on line and looked at one of Fluke's current top bench DMMs with a stated VDC accuracy of UP TO 0.0024%, then went back and looked at my actual WORST CASE deviation per the shown factory test certificate and my worst case deviation was 0.0034%! And I just calculated the actual accuracy from my test certificate for the 290 ohm test load and as shown, its actual deviation was again (anyone can check the math) 0.0034% (290 ohms read as 290.01), NOT the manufacturer's stated minimum guaranteed accuracy of 0.07! Son, you admitted you've never worked in any sort of actual R&D lab, somehow stupidly thought it referred to the Bureau of Standards (NIST), and are a washed up has been leftover from the Vietnam War Era. You should stick to your archaing misconceptions about what real life test equipment can do in real world situations and the next time you want to try to jump down someone's throat blindly feet first trying to laugh at proving them wrong, you ought to try to get a few facts straight first and get your head out of old user manuals and your ass. What a piece of test equipment actually does and what the manufacturer GUARANTEES as minimum quality are often two different things, Junior!
