That would be the answer to everybody.
The one tach I was going to see about importing you would have been able to set it like a car tach with two pulse or one pulse per rev.
I would start with 2 if in the $50 range per.

This is the very first tach that is designed the way conventional tachometers are normally designed. YES....there are less expensive tachs out there, such as Tiny Tach, but those tacks are hermetically sealed with a battery inside. When the battery fails, you toss the tach in the garbage and buy a new one. That's something that always ticked me off. Also, if you are into competing, then a large analog tach is better than a digital one iMHO, because you can put a red stripe or a dot on the outside of the glass at whatever RPM you feel is ideal. Trying to read teeny digits in the midst of guiding your tractor is next to impossible. I know that this one seems a bit pricey but quality is usually something you pay for once and then get to pat yourself on the back for as the years roll by.

I have one with the inductive clamp. I don't see how that would work as a tach. I'm sure that I'm just stuck "thinking inside the box", and at the risk of looking like an idiot in front of everyone else, if you could explain I'd be grateful! I have seen automotive DMM's that have a tach/dwell setting before, but have never been able to justify the extra expense as I can use a regular DMM for checking everything else.
if thats all you want you might want to look into a multimeter with an inductive clamp. i have one from harbor freight for $35 and it works on kohlers with battery ign and tecumseh with magneto ignition. wont work for weed wackers or push mowers id imagine

I tried for a couple weeks to find something that would work. The only option I found close was to import and I never did that before and don't think I would want to try. I know my luck and it wouldn't be the tachs that got imported and my money would be gone LOL.
I think it would be awesome to have some gttalk logo'd tachs.
Id have to agree i think importing would be more of an export of your money than an import of a quality product!

clamp it on and set the meter to the tachometer setting. not sure what else i can say?
Sorry Mike. I didn't realize that you were talking about one of the automotive style meters. This is what I have and was talking about
It doesn't have a tach setting. Sorry for the confusion.

I am also going to start my search on finding other tachs or a make to see about getting a couple with the logo on them.
