Hi guys and gals just bought a Calrad 45-740 off e-bay.does any body use one and if so how do you like it.from all i can find on them you must have to make up plugs for power in coming and out going ? the picture of mine shows no power cord and no plug for test item?.just looking for input.thanks Bennie

It looks like you could for starters, get a decent extension cord and cut it in half, use the plug end for the input and the socket end for the output. A neat touch would be to use crimp-on forked lugs on the wires where they go under the terminals.

Good find, Bennie. You did well. And you did not have to pay ebay prices. Good job!
