Default New camera

I bought a 9mm usb endoscope camera. I thought it could be used to watch the action of the truck/plates at floor level, mounted on the skate. Got to make a couple of mounts now....

Cool. Bet that will be an interesting angle.

I had fun with it. I used 2 fat rubber bands with 2 clothes pins and strapped the clothes pins on to the plate. Opened the clothes pins and stuck the 9mm camera in the jaws of the clothes pins. Then adjusted focal distance and spun the camera to make sure everything was not upside down.
I have several other cameras and this thing works good for close up shots, way better than I expected. $12 on ebay and will work with most android OS. Got more recording to do but got work to do on trucks.
I found that I already have the right size cutters to open the pockets up, just got to clamp down into the mill vise.

Default At least your keeping busy /mind active

I would have never thought of doing that , but they do wheel cams on race cars n bikes which gives us an idea on what the suspension is doing.can you post footage on youtube when youve got time?
