Well the Sears 9mm borescope arrived just yesterday. My initial impression was good, but it doesn't come with a protective case like the Harbor Freight unit does. I installed the four AA batteries & played with it around the house for a few minutes. It doesn't have as strong LED lighting as the Harbor Freight (HF) unit & the HF unit seems to have a better picture quality. I suppose that stands to reason that the unit with the bigger camera lens would have the better picture quality. The Sears unit will fit down a sparkplug hole on even the small diameter plugs where the HF unit will not as it is a 16mm or .630" end on it. The Sears unit also does not have any provision to install a plug jack & hook it up to a larger monitor or a recording device like the HF unit does.

So there you have my very informal notes on the two units. If you want to go through a sparkplug hole to inspect a cylinder, then the Sears unit is the way to go. If you have an entrance that a 16mm end will pass through, then the HF unit is better.

Good luck

Well the bore scope is on sale right now. I think it is usually in the $140 range, but I can't recall what the ad said.
I ordered two. One for me & one for my Dad's birthday.

You shouldn't miss Harbor Freight. Most of their stuff runs towards the junk side. I much prefer shopping at Sears for tools. I just happen to have a Harbor Freight about 2-3 miles from my house. I only go there in an emergency for disposable items, or if they have an interesting item on sale. I feel like Harbor Freight is much like Walmart. Chinese manufactured junk products, under paid workers & it makes it difficult for the real tool stores to stay in business.

Sears needs our support these days, as they are having a tough time. It will be a real shame to see another 100+ year old American business not be able to make it any longer.

Good luck on that house

Hey Doug,

Do you have a Sears store that you can order from?

Here is another deal on a scope from Sears for $90.
http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_SPM6922768513

The Harbor Freight scope has a 16mm camera, while the Sears scope has a 9mm camera. I don't know how the picture quality is on the Sears scope, but the smaller diameter camera is a bonus.

Good luck

I had it saved in my Favorites, but had completely forgotten about the site.

A member over on the MTS board posted it up & reminded me about it. It's a real cool site!

Thanks
