The Multimeter is very useful when trying to wire up a control panel.
Without having to connect the lot up to a transformer, this piece of equipment can show wher the current is going- or- conversely, where it's not.
Two probes make it easy to use, this is an analogue example- I prefer ir to a digital type. Being greedy I have both types but the original as shown here is my preference.

This is the wire stock control system and storage facility. As can be seen no expense has been spared for this vital component!
In this basket are several thicknesses of multicored wire. Clad in various colours, each will have a part to play in the routing of current around the layout.
I must, sometime, sort out the cats cradle, it will save a lot of time in the long run.
