A Cat6 cable slipped out my hands this evening and has fallen down a wall cavity... It is on a job and I cannot use another cable or split another one as it is carrying rs232 signal not data...

I have to solve this this weekend, this job has dragged on and I don't want the client to even be aware of this problem.

I need someone who has a snake camera / fibre optic camera that you use for looking down cavities and inspecting pipes. Failing that a could also use a lipstick camera and tape it onto a long cable and run it to a monitor.

I am desperate and will pay in cash.

Any direct enquiries call me on 0220235611

Any suggestions of third parties I can try contact please reply and I will chase them up and be very grateful!

This is what happens when you decide to rush a bit extra work in the 5mins you have left instead of being satisfied with the day's output!!!!!!!!!!! Grrrrrrrrrr I am dumb sometimes!

No idea if it would be at all suitable (or long enough) or how much you want to spend but I saw this in the latest SCA mailer:

Jaycar also has a USB mini inspection camera (2m and 7m cable length). Just add a laptop.

You can never have enough Volvos!

You can buy extensions for the Jaycar inspection cams.

lurker: What about calling the sewer guys. Not sure how clean their cams considering where they've been, but they do call outs and their cams go a long way...

When you say the sewer guys who do you mean exactly? Or do you mean call up a drainage company?

Probably easier to buy one of these inspection cameras from jaycar and then if client 'drops by' I don't have to explain the hoary drainage guy in his house ;-)

Yeah I mean the drainage/plumber types. After the Chch quakes we had damaged drains and one company came out with a big spooled cam on a sackbarrow, went a long way. I presume they would help, or maybe there are health and safety rules around their use, considering the places they go to. But these guys do callouts during weekends so maybe a last resort backup when all else fails.
