Milwaukee 12 Volt Inspection Scope

Milwaukee 12 Volt Inspection Scope Preview

It wasn’t the 360 degree rotating screen that I liked the most about the Milwaukee 12 Volt Inspection Scope it was the 12 volt, lithium-Ion batteries.

Don’t get me wrong when I’m lying on my back inside a  crawl space cavity and tilting my head sideways too look at a screen I’m sure the 360 degree tilt screen is going to be an awesome feature.  Especially when your trying to orient the picture your eyes to what your viewing.

This summer I had the opportunity to play with this scope at the Milwaukee media event.  Next to the hammer drills the inspection scope was a favorite of mine.   I cringe to think of the time and money this tool could have saved me over the years…. just think a well placed  1/2″ hole and this scope can save you from cutting inspection holes all over the place.

As a contractor, electrician, plumber, HVAC installer or mechanic you have to appreciate the 2.7” LCD display, the four LED lights were a clear advantage over some of the competitor inspection scopes.

The display, the four LED lights were a clear advantage over some of the competitor inspection scopes. M-Spector 360™ comes with a 3 foot cable with an optional 9 foot cable and a new Pipe Guide attachment to navigate pipes better.  I did not get the chance to test out the pipe attachment.

A mirror, hook and magnet will also be included to help the user inspect, diagnose and solve countless problems in service, maintenance and repair applications.
