Periscope mirror for grain truck
I made this periscope mirror for my grain truck because it was impossible to see where the combine was dumping wheat in my truck while unloading "on the go". Now I can turn around from the driver's seat and view up and over the front of the box to see exactly where grain is falling into the truck. I usually start filling the truck from the back so the mound of wheat doesn't obstruct my view as the box gets full.
To make it, I bought two side-view mirrors from a farm supply store and used some 1/ 2-in. angle iron from my scrap pile to mount the mirrors sideways at just the right angle for viewing. (Kim Ford, Rt. 2, Box 170, Carrier, Okla. 73727)
