Default FYI For SeeSnake Micro Owners

I just received a reply from Ridgid tech support this morning regarding the new smaller 9.5mm imager head for the SeeSnake Micro.
They said that the new 9.5mm imager head assembly uses the same connector and is interchangeable with the older 17mm head assembly, so that means if you already own the original model SeeSnake Micro with the 17mm head, you can upgrade it to the new smaller 9.5mm head and can also continue to use any additional 3-foot extensions that you may already have. The smaller replacement head is around $95.00, but that's still less than half as much as it would cost for a complete new SeeSnake unit with the 9.5mm head.

This is good news since the new imager head is only about half of the diameter of the older head. It's also rare that a company considers their base of existing owners when they make improvements to a product line.

The head is smaller and the shafts are the same????????

If I'm going to do anything, I think I'll upgrade to either the Rigid or Milwaukee that can record images and video.

Hacks don't use SeeSnake's they use hammers.

This sentence is incorrect. It should be: "Hacks don't use SeeSnake's. They use hammers."

You're not buying tools. You're buying a tool. Slight technical difference there.

Besides, it would be A tool that was once owned by THE tool.

And that would be cool!

Actually a comma between SeeSnake's and they would have worked fine, Hackman.

Either way it was wrong. Too bad Steelersman didn't catch it first.

Also, no apostrophe in SeeSnake's. It should be SeeSnakes. With the apostrophe, it's possessive. Without it, it's plural.

Milwaukee has theirs on promotional with the little 12V lithium-ion driver free in the kit. Uses the same battery as the Milwaukee see snake thingamajig. I got one a couple weeks ago for $248. Probably cheaper online if you look. I think it was the same part number as the camera alone, but with a "-P" on the end of the part number for "promotional".
