LCD Inspection Camera

There was a discussion last week about using a Harbor Freight LCD Inspection Camera to examine clutch plate wear. Harbor Freight has that camera on sale this week for $69.99, 50 bucks below usual cost. I think I'll go buy one.

Sounds like a nice toy. You can also offer sigmoidoscopies to the neighbors.

As tempted to buy that with the 20% coupon but the reviews were horrendous. Massive fail rate on that product along with a 20% restocking fee if you return it.

I would go milwaukee or ridgid from homedepot.com even though its twice the price. Harbor freight pricing is tempting but dont buy anything breakable. Its all china crap.
