Why do I envision you at the bottom of a stairway using this in a improper manner??? Hehehe. I could really use this to get around the Northstar. I showed this to the wife and said Christmas is coming. She walked way. Can I borrow yours???

Ebay, search for see snake camera. This one was $160, I wanted the carry case. You can add 2 more extensions for a total of 10 feet. I don't know how many times I've dropped something in the engine bay and can't find it. This will help.

My wife made a comment that surprised me, she then said I'm perverted, I then pointed out that she said it, not me.

Looks about the same, but where'* the display? I choose the one I have because I can remove the display and stick it any place.

The very first one of these I used had a straight metal rod and made no bends at all. The very end with the light bulb would get so hot it would blister you if it touched skin. Looks like they have made much needed improvements.

I'd like to see how well it can see across the upper valve train and inside a cylinder bore. And things like confirming rear seal/pilot shaft seal leaks. Clutch disc thickness. some caliper pads which are a pain to see. Inside the differential through the fill hole. Not all Bonne related but what a plus getting the back spark plugs out of a Northstar...... Hook us up with some cool photo/video ops cause :

Where the Red are that reads 'Milwaukee' is the screen. It'* got a pretty good light on the end of it. The only thing I wish this had was a the ability to store an image or two so you can download it.

Wish I had that too. But I have a video out port, I'll have to see what I can find to get the image to the computer.

We have inspection camars at work and I love using them. My advice, if you ever get your "other" pregnant, don't ask if you can try to find the baby. It didn't work out for me.
