Whether you call it an inspection camera, a borescope, or an endoscope, these little magic cameras can get into those hard-to-see and reach places so you can figure out exactly what's going on. eBay has a huge range of inspection cameras perfect for all your metalworking, plumbing and other needs.
How to care for your inspection camera
There are a few simple things to keep in mind if you want your inspection camera to stand the test of time and remain a trusted piece of industrial metalworking equipment.
When you're not using it, make sure to keep any protective pieces attached to the lenses. In that same vein, try to keep the lens covers in a safe spot while you are working so you can use quickly and easily put them back on when you're finished.
Part of what makes inspection cameras so great is their ability to snake around tough spots and give you the inside scoop. But that shouldn't give you license to just cram them in and around corners and curves as hard as you can. Just like with most industrial metalworking equipment, inspection cameras can break or otherwise malfunction if forced into action they're not prepared for.
Finally, when you're finished using the tool, don't just chuck it in a box or bag until next time you're ready to scope. Clean off the lens surfaces as best you can to keep gunk and other debris from building up and causing damage.
