Abstract : An assemblage of tubular members for channeling, and thereby guiding, the fiber optic cable of a borescope into the recesses of an aircraft engine. A relatively flexible portion is topped by a rigid portion that is capped by a handle. The portions are removable housed in a larger tube that has a curved lower portion to provide direction to the flexible tube and optic cable. The borescope cable is extended down through the handle and out the flexible portion, and can be maneuvered by turning the handle. (Author)
