Spark plug magnafier

Postby statsystems » Tue Jan 10, 2017 11:55 pm

So, I can't find my spark plug magnifier. It's old, probably from 1980 or so, so I guess a new one is in order.

I found the Dr mom otoscope. They also have an LED model but it only has 5x magnification.


Anyone have a good source?

I have both the Dr. Mom Otoscope and a Fowler lighted magnifier. Have not used the Otoscope for spark plug inspection.

I must have gotten the Fowler on some kind of sale, because I did not pay this much for it:

I have the Dr. Mom one. Works pretty good for the money. Worst part is the creepy in-ear pics they put on the box. Cover those up with a racing sticker, stat! :mrgreen:
