Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and great tachometer! I had a cheap chinese made tachometer and the readings it gave was not accurate and quite jumpy. Decided to buy this one from Autometer instead. And the result was brilliant, accurate and smooth readings. The packaging was good too and easy to read instructions. Perhaps abit pricey, but in the end you get quality from this american made product.
