Not really what you are looking for, but coincidentally EEVblog posted a video today about LCR tweezers. Tweezers are more SMD oriented though, but I found it interesting nonetheless. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f_h0ogRTjY <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f_h0ogRTjY>

The ohmmeter approach is best for me because I have to constantly move my glasses or even switch between two pairs just to handle the PC board, solder, read the next instruction, etc. If I had a laptop it would help with some of this but I don't.
