This tester not only tests
continuity but also measures resistance of circuits and detonators. It
contains an ohmeter, resistance, and battery (1.5 volts). The battery is
housed in a cylinder 4.7 inches high with the ohmeter on top. Adjusting
screws for setting the ohmeter needle to zero and infinity are midway
