AE EP#41 Poor Mans HV Probe

I was trying to repair my tek 2236 and was in need of measuring a -2kV line, only problem: my best Multimeter can only do 1000 V so I had to yank up 30 3k3 Ohm resistors in series to make a 100M Ohm Resistor. All put into some trash plastic tube makes a usable series resistor for the MM.

Be sure to watch the safety advice and keep your hands off the circuit under test!
Have fun!
