Thank you for the helpful link, DA. I'll pick one of those up....while I still can. 


Bummer about Radio Shack declaring bankruptcy. Perhaps they'll reorganize and some stores will remain open, but....


I've always liked being able to drop in there and pick up an odd switch, fuse, resistor, etc.

Good luck, Dante. Please use a digital multimeter or non-contact voltage tester on all conductors you'll be working with after you've pulled the fuse/turned off the breaker. After you are certain that there is no voltage on ANY of the conductors(including the ground wire...if there is one), short them together briefly with a screwdriver or just touch the bare ends together as a reality check...don't trust your meter absolutely. 120 volts can give you a nasty shock.

In Topic: Tight spots video/still camera for inspecting just about anything

I've used it for a dryer vent and many times for "low-impact" location of plumbing and appliance leaks. The video capture feature enables one to visually explain a problem to a customer and to save a video file for later analysis. Mine is cumbersome because of the addition of the 25' drain snake, but a 5 meter unit with a removable guide wire or pole would be the bee's knees.


Not sure on tablet adaptability. There are no current draw numbers in the specifications. I'd guess a few hundred milliamps @ 5VDC...software should be pretty simple webcam stuff.

Good for you on rolling up your sleeves and getting into the transmission on this one!  We're still running our old LA8520 with a house full of kids and it never misses a beat. We pulled the seized transmission shaft out, cleaned it up and replaced the tub seal 6 or 8 years ago, and that's the only repair we've needed on the old tank.
