Hawkeye® Classic Hardy

Bigger, brighter, and more rugged!

Hawkeye® Classic Hardy Borescopes

Classic Hardy™
.250” (6.35 mm)

When access holes are large enough, Hawkeye® Classic
Hardy Borescopes bring much more light to the subject. Their rugged, thick-walled stainless steel tubes have an outside diameter of a quarter-inch.

Classic Hardys deliver 3x the illumination of the Classic Slim.

The Classic Hardy is ideal for inspecting castings, engine
cylinders, internal welds, and pipes.

  Note 1
Hawkeye Rigid Borescopes can be made to operate up to 300 deg. C on a custom Basis. Contact your sales representative for details.
  Note 2
These scope were not designed to operate below 0º. However, several of our customers have successfully used the scopes in liquid Nitrogen at 77 deg. K.
All Hawkeye borescopes we designed only for use at ambient pressure, however,  we have several customers who have successfully used Hawkeye Borescopes at pressures up to 500 PSI and down to 10-6 Torr.  As the scopes were not specifically designed for this, the operator does so at his own risk.
  Chemical Resistance
All Hawkeye Rigid borescopes (tube only, not the eyepiece end) are water tight and are resistant to most hydrocarbons; oils, gasoline, hydraulic fluid, jet fuel, etc.  Exposure to Acids and strong Alkali should be avoided as it will attack the optical window.
