Looking for a "tachometer" for 2 strokes. Saw and wackers mainly.

    Been searching for a tachometer, to help me "tune" saws and weed wackers.

    Amazon and Ebay are full of them, all of which seem a bit dicey. Craigslist shows nothing at all.

    Not looking to spend a fortune.

    Yep That's a bit pricey for me. But, maybe.

    The DTI is the one I’ve got. It is pricey, but works well.

    There is also a nice holder available for these(it clips to the handlebar), although I'm not sure where the guys get them.

    That link doesn't work 100% for me. When I click on it it looks like it loads, but nothing happens. Then if I click on the url it shows up just as you have it, if I now hit enter it works :badpc:. I'm on a MacBook running safari.

    Just go to the "sponsor" section at top of the page and select the Bailey's link. I copied the link and open in a new page and it worked.

    I have the DTI, just keep your eyes open if you are in no rush. I finally found one like new on ebay for $25 plus $5 shipping.
