Snap-on’s new digital image capturing borescope (BK6000) is an aid for inspecting components that are difficult to reach. Technicians are said to be able to diagnose problems more quickly and accurately, avoiding disassembly when not required, resulting in significant savings in time and effort.

The new borescope is ideal for: inspecting cylinder bores and valves through the spark plug hole; examining for gear wear in differentials and manual transmissions; viewing inside door and body panels to check for malfunctions, defects, hidden damage; inspecting under the dash for electrical routing, HVAC actuator operation, radio code verification; and locating fluid leaks without a direct line of sight.

Key features include: it records and plays back still images and video clips; the 3.5-in. display offers a large viewing screen; quick-change connector enables use of optional length, special-purpose imagers; removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack; it can be operated while charging the battery; integrated stand and hangar for flexible positioning; multi-language interface; 2x digital zoom for increased viewing and recording flexibility; mini USB connector for uploading images and video to a computer for viewing, e-mailing; external SDHC card slot to save images and videos to take anywhere; and audio input jack for recording comments with optional ear bud & microphone attachment.

It comes with a two-year warranty.
