    As per the title I am looking for recommendations for a new fuse finder / cable tracer. Not worried about the price more the accuracy of the instrument.

    I've got a martindale unit that needs power at one end for the tone to generate. The socket and see unit has batteries that you can use on a dead circuit, might be useful.
    I've only used mine once. I generally use my warbling socket tester and listen for the silence but as I'm domestic that's most often possible.
    See what others recommend.

    Power at one end is fine but I need it to be spot on accurate at the other.

    May I recommend the Fluke Pro3000. Fantastic bit of kit.

    There's a analogue and a digital version of the Martindale (or at least there was) the digital will be dearer, but is very good imho.

    I had to buy one recently and ended up with a TIS one from CEF, it was about £50 but I was surprised to find it works really well.

    So I eventually went for the Martindale CD1000 unit. Have been using it for the last 3 days with spot on accuracy in what can only be described as a challenging installation as it was overseas and by no means to UK standards. At a smidge over £300 it has paid for itself at least twice over. Roll on next weekend until I have to go back and complete the survey lol.
