After my recent head off job due to "crap" in the cylinder bought one of these and can highly recommend it...with a head diameter of only 7mm it can go past your butterflies ,through open valves into the cylinder or if you prefer the easy route down through the plug hole....it's limitless....and for only £12.99...great purchase...I sound like a salesman :lol:

Calling salesman John,

As has been said, handy bit of kit. Even works on my iBook too, with no need to do anything like loading a disc etc.

Thanks again,

Doug.

I got one a couple of weeks ago - a good buy !

One thing I would advise is that my laptop's internal webcam setting was for a "mirror" setting to be applied. This meant when I panned left with the camera, the image panned right.

This setting was then applied to the USB-powered camera, until I changed it globally.

Thanks for posting that John. Ordered one today on eBay US. I think they all come from Hong Kong but here's a US seller that ships from the US for free for those of us in the colonies. ...okay, Nevada was never a colony.

John- I've had good luck buying directly from China on eBay but when I can get something from a US buyer it usually gets here faster. In this case there was a $4 difference in price for the same product.

:wink: The link in the first post shows the seller in Jersey, UK.

Mine arrived this morning but gardening is priority 1 at the moment.
Just one question; that tiny CD ROM that comes with it, is there anything useful on it?
Oh yes, more importantly, will my lap top swallow it without regurgitating it :shock:

Cheers

The small cd-rom was fine on mine. If you're concerned, it mainly includes the manual & drivers - both of which can be downloaded from the camera makers website.
