No! Not that kind of tool although I have been known to be one on occasion.

For those of us that like to have that odd tool in the tool box for different reasons. One tool popped up on my radar this morning called an endoscope. In the medical field they use them for looking in the different orifice's of our body. For us though it might be to look into a cylinder, behind a wall, a gun barrel or maybe some duct work.

Found a few sources for these really affordable cameras that attach to your Android phone. There may be some for iPhones but I didn't look for them. Prices starting at $9.53. Whether you buy them straight from China or through a 3rd party here or in whatever country you live in; they all come from China.



Android Endoscopes:

This is the one I went with:



Got a cool tool to share?

PS: I also picked up an Infrared Temp Gun.

Valuable tool. I've had the medical version used on me many times. Actually they attached a laser to it and removed my cancerous tumor.

I got these in the other day and the IR temp reader is great. PaiN; you really need to get one and at $13 you just can't go wrong. Last time I looked; these things were up around $30. Even came with batteries.

The borescope/endoscope only worked with a PC and not my Android smart phone so I'm sending it back. I'll do more research and try to find another one. I think it was the fancy USB end on the cord. It has a cool fold back design which allows to go from regular USB to mini USB so an adapter isn't needed. It would be great if it worked like it was supposed to but the phone did not recognize the device was plugged in and I didn't have an adapter to troubleshoot it with.

Here are two more tools I find handy. Gaffers tape in black and in white. The white tape is great for labeling and is generally better than duct tape. So is the black. The black can also be a substitute for shrink wrap or something you might grip like a hokey stick.







They come in different sizes but I find the 2" to be the most handy because you can tear it to any width you like.

I ended up ordering a different borescope. Amazon lists it as the best seller so maybe I will have better luck with it. It doesn't have the fancy shmancy USB end but it does come with an adapter. I will report on it when I get it.

Well shoot. I'm either having some seriously bad luck with these borescopes or they are junk. The second one is going back tomorrow. It got here quick and got it today but camera doesn't even work with the PC on this one. At least the other one worked with the PC. Probably would have worked with my laptop. I should have kept it knowing what I know now. I may give it a try again in a month or so. Maybe they just keep sending out ones that have been sent back to them due to not working. Seems like a terrible business model though.

Gaffers tape I use...when I'm gaffing...worked a commercial for Bob Parson's Scottsdale Harley a few months back. It was this one:
