Use junk to measure your caps and coils

[Cliff] sent in [N5ESE]‘s junk box project page. Most of the projects are amateur radio specific, but one that caught my eye was his capacitance checker. If you’ve ever been looking through a pile of small, unlabeled caps, you know the value of a capacitance meter. This one is fairly simple and uses the AC setting of your multimeter to indicate the capacitance of the unknown component.
