[volt-nuts] How accurate is a fluke after 9 years

The Fluke 5700A and 5720A as well as the Wavetek 4808 and 4800A are pretty amazing I have seen several that appear to have been abused for years without a Cal and are still spot on. Same with many of the HP and Agilent 3458A's.
It seems I see more broken then out of spec.
