The PalmScope from General Tools is more than just a small, full-featured video inspection system. It is also built to survive in the harsh environments of plumbing and automotive maintenance and repair, not to mention any unusual situations to which a do-it-yourselfer might subject it. The unit’s thermoplastic rubber (TPR) housing and integral LCD are certified drop-proof to a height of 1 m (3.4 ft.). The system can be operated with one hand, leaving the other hand free to use tools. The grip and LCD get their input from a camera-tipped probe. The probe that comes with the PalmScope is 2 ft. (0.6 m) long and has a camera-head diameter of 9 mm (0.35 in.), making it ideal for inspecting gasoline engine cylinders through the spark plug hole. Other general automotive applications include inspecting hard-to-reach or hard-to-see areas of the engine compartment or undercarriage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very helpful tool. Some years ago I purchased another brand of snake cam for my work in the HVAC field. I found that this other brand had too large of a head on it to fit through small openings while I was trying to inspect heat exchangers for furnaces, or other places that required nimble movement and persise angles to be able to see what I was hoping to inspect. But with the Palm Scope I have found that is capable of fitting into tight places, and is easy to maneuver around the heat exchangers and duct systems. It is also easy to store and carry. Where as before I would have to take an whole tool case with me while attempting to use the previouse brand of snake cam, the Palm Scope I have found can be carried with ease on my belt or along side my other hand tools. This tool is great for visually verifying for your costumer what is wrong with there furnace or their duct systems or any verity or other projects you may have. The Palm Scope can often times be the deferance between a costumer not being willing to take your word and your good reputation of being honest at face value, because he has been lied to and taken advantage of before by other contractors, and thus he does not go ahead with the repair you recommended. Or the costumer saying yes to the repair because he is able to see your honesty first hand...in the palm of your hand...with the Palm Scope. Robert Martinez HVAC tech Atlanta GA April 8, 2014
