Small Engine Tachometer
I have been working on a lot of single and twin cylinder engines lately. Several times I have needed a tachometer to set max rpm.
Any suggestions as what to get?

A strobe light would work the best.

You state you are "working on a lot of" small engines lately. You may want to look into the hand-held optical or laser tachs which do not have to be attached to the engine. Just point at a revolving part. These are a bit pricey, in the $150 range, but are very accurate, hand held, and stay with you. I own one and used it in industrial applications. Worth it's weight on gold when needed.

You could try this.

Try this small engine tachometer . Looks pretty similar to the Tiny Tach brand. Good luck.
