SNAKESCOPE Borescope
« on: April 06, 2013, 11:03:09 am »
with these new tilted cylinders on the 5 series HUSQVARNA saws,looking in the cylinder thru the smaller spark plug hole is now almost impossible.
 The smaller spark plug is showing up on other HUSQVARNA equipment as well   :o

i'm now use'in' a snakescope,along with the new diagnostic software from HVA to keep track of service records!

here's a pic   ;)

I can think of a few times I could have used something like that.

Very Nice!  Thanks for the link.  Would have saved me a couple of hours on a 670 Champ Jonsered.  Piston was scored around the corner couldn't see it through ex. port.  Got so frustrated @ the time I didn't think to look through spark plug hole.

Went looking for one of these. Found two different models from harbor freight one for 89 and other 199. Wondering if anyone has tried the hf versions.

'Everybody' is selling one: Milwaukee, Ryobi, DeWalt, etc. On the shelf at Home Depot.

Worth your time to compare models if you are interested in this type of tool. Some let you look sideways (e.g. to inspect a cylinder wall. Some let you take/save photos. Some have detachable screens for easier positioning.  Some have better lighting. Etc., etc., etc. 

I have looked at them through the years, but the models and specs keep changing.

I have been looking at home despot also. I noticed that some have camera diameters in the 5/8 range making them too large o get into the smaller plug holes. Some like the Milwaukee are only 3/8.

SnakeScope clone at Harbor Freight
« Reply #7 on: February 22, 2014, 11:00:03 am »
Going to post some pictures that were taken with my new SnakeScope clone from Harbor Freight so may not be the best as I have not mastered its' use  yet but not a bad deal reg $249 on sale for $199 and a 25% off coupon gets it for $150. Big screen b/w and color .3 inch head (goes right down the plug hole) and also will go through the EP or IP and out the other side with adjustable light, pan and zoom. Pictures downloadable to computer or TV, as well as movie capability, and a micro SD card slot max 16 Gig. I have not tried but it may even fit beneath the piston at TDC and allow you to look at the crank. If the pictures don't come out well I will take some more.

This is something I might be interested in for work to help in making faster and better diagnosis.
