Home-Built Turn Signal
FARM SHOW showed my home-built turn signal in an earlier issue but I thought your readers might like to see it again on my 4-WD tractor. Every year there are dozens of times when motorists pass or try to pass me when I'm about to make a left turn. They don't seem to notice factory turn signals but they can't miss this big turn arrow I built. It's a 12 by 13-in. steel box with a flashing light inside. We painted a bright yellow arrow on the box's Plexiglass cover and also attached a bright yellow warning sign on top that we got from Gempler's catalog (P.O. Box 270, Mt. Horeb, Wis. 53572; ph 608 437-4883). It mounts on the rear left fender. A separate toggle switch for the signal mounts in the cab. When this turn signal is on, it's almost impossible to ignore.
