Have any of you guys seen or tried any of the electronic bore scopes on the market? You can get them for $150 or less on ebay. I thought about buying one when I replaced the sparkplugs and coil packs on a Ford E-150 van. It would have been nice to take a peek down the holes the plugs were installed to inspect the seat and threads. I just don't know if the lower cost units work very well.

On an editorial note, replacing those plugs and coils was a huge pain in the rear.

The borescope can help with that too :moondance:


On a serious note, I've looked at the Milwaukee and Ryobi scopes at Home Depot; the M'kee was twice the price but seemed to have better construction and a better display quality. I suppose it depends on how much you want to spend... I've also rented an industrial scope worth $15,000. The reason I know how much it cost was due to a technician employee breaking it. :fouetaa:

been thinking about those myself and it appears that the ones on Ebay with the color LCD's are better than the ones found at lowes and home depot.
