I am looking for the correct terminology to describe probes from an obsolete multimeter so that I can use this information to find replacements myself.
I am not asking for specific recommendations or site links. If I happened to receive such along the way it would be a bonus BUT I'm really asking for specific technical information.
I've got an analogue multimeter that I've had for years that I happen to like - I know it's fairly old, but I can keep it in the small tool kit that I cart around. It's perfectly acceptable for low voltage, quick jobs when I don't need great accuracy and it doesn't have a battery that I'll forget to change or could leak. Basically it's a decent spare meter.
Recently the black probe lead had a fight with a soldering iron and lost. I'm now on the lookout for a replacement set of probes.
The problem is the jack plug that connects the probe lead to the meter is only 2mm in diameter. All the replacement probes I've seen on-line use a 4mm banana plug (assuming they even bother saying what size the plug is at all). I know this is standard for modern multimeters, but I'd still like to be able use my old meter.
Searching for phrases like "multimeter probes 2mm jack" bring up loads of result for probes with a 4mm jack and a 2mm probe head, which isn't what I need.
Question: Can anyone advise me what the proper names or terminology are for these old style probes so that I can search for them myself?
