Gene, I've used my DeWalt inspection camera to retrieve items that have been dropped down the dashboard vents in our car. The tiny camera diameter made that possible as did the LED that's built into the tip of the camera lens tube.
One really neat thing about this inspection camera is that I can remove the display and put it somewhere that I can see it while moving the grip body all around.
I've used my inspection camera to find things as well as to inspect things that I couldn't normally see due to other things being in the way.
Thanks Skip. I guess I really should take another look at the camera.
When my wife and I moved from our previous home into our current one, I got rid of a small fortune in tools, (my grandfather was a blacksmith) some of which I wish I had kept. I gave a lot of them away rather than offer them up for sale and have someone insult me by offering me pennies on the dollar. (I guess it made me feel better to give things away to someone who needed it rather than to get insulted by someone's low-ball offer.)
I can definitely see the value in having a tool such as this. I've never owned this type of tool previously.
Thanks for your thoughts. I'll let you know which way I go with this. As I said, you sure can't beat the price.
I was just sitting here thinking about what I just posted above. Today (the 11th) is my 71st birthday. My wife already tried to talk me into buying it.
I think I'm going to go out tomorrow to buy myself a remote view camera. Thanks for the nudge.
