Description
The flexible probe consists of a control knob, finger grips, and a thin, hollow rod with a spiral groove at its end; a small, solid metal rod, flat on one side and round on the others, projects from the bottom of a bell-shaped control knob; the rounded sides of the solid rod have a metal thread; the bell-shaped knob has gripping lines stamped along its bottom rim; this knob controls the curvature of the end of the rod opposite the knob end; the knob is attached to a hollow, round metal rod; two closed, round finger grips extend from either side of this rod; two small, round screws with slotted tops enter the rod on either side of the finger grips; after the upper screw, the finger-grip rod component is attached to a straight, hollow thinner rod; approximately 2/3 of this rod is smooth; the last 1/3 has a curving, thin groove cut into the metal; this groove gives the instrument its flexibility; the rod tapers and ends in a rounded tip; a small round hole runs from one side of the tip to the other.
