How do I get or make a cheap strobe for measuring the RPM of my wheel?

Cheap = <£100

Thanks Bill

I was obviously looking for the wrong thing coz when I looked of digital tachometer instead of stroboscope I got the above which had oodles of tachs.

I'll take you off my ignore list and click your greenie for that. ;-)

Hey, what the.... how did you see my post if I was on your ignore list?

That might be the least difficult of my probably ongoing difficult questions :D

Good question.

I kept putting it on but when I checked it had gone off. I haven't a clue why.
Maybe single greenies aren't allowed to ignore triple greenies, eh! ;-)

I ordered a Tachometer from Amazon last night - about £10 (see attachment)

It came this afternoon. Edwin tested it out on the wheel. Seems to work fine.
