The Tech Garage Low Cost Borescope!
Just a few short years ago having access to a borescope was a luxury that few racers, engine builders, and hobbyists could afford. You would typically have to spend a few thousand dollars for one. They were not that flexible, in that you would either not be able to record images or would have to spend a bunch of money for camera adapters.
We had a borescope at work, and it cost something like $5000. It came in a large wood case that weighed 20 lbs. Not super portable. The same for my buddies at Cosworth; they would have to lug the big borescope around to all the races and would bitch about it all the time if they were the ones chosen to take it.
Nowadays, a good borescope is still expensive, although there are inexpensive consumer grade ones for as low as $150 bucks. The borescope market is about to change. The Tech Garage has just come out with some very affordable borescopes that use your cell phone as the monitor. They start for as low as $19.95, and their high-end model costs only $69.95.
How well do these borescopes work? Let's see!
I have one of your borescopes. Had it about a year. I don’t remember the model number but I paid $39 or $49 for it. I would like to get another one or two of them for gifts but I can’t find them for sale. Do you still offer them? Thx,Doug
We didn’t sell them, but I don’t see their site available anymore. It looks like they may have sold their company? Unsure…sorry!
I got the EE6000 borescope a few years ago and it worked perfectly then a while back I went to use it and it wouldn’t connect with my phone and I can’t find the app anywhere any idea what to do thanks. I bought it from The Tech Garage it looks identical to what you have on your site. Thanks
My ee6000 will not connect to the internet!!!
i have a ee6000 scope used it a couple times , worked good , now what happens is it keeps loosing the wifi and i have to go into my phone and reboot all the time can you help me
Well….. Looks like I am not the only one left in the dirt…. Went to use my ee6000 today and it didn’t connect.
The app was unresponsive. I tried to get to settings but, nothing. No problem I figured I would just reload the app. I deleted the old app then went to the app store to only to find out there is no HD See app any longer. WTF! I guess I am stuck without a borescope now.
unit won’t work, will not charge, will not connect to the internet, QR code is invalid in the US.
This is an old article, the company may have gone out of business.
