Height gauge for combine header
A yardstick attached to the combine header and running up through the floor of the cab tells Jack Freeman, Mustang, Okla., the exact height of his Gleaner combine at a glance.
"When I got the idea, I intended to use a piece of rod or pipe, but because the length needed was 3 ft., I got the idea of using a yellow plastic yardstick. To in-stall, I simply bolted the lower end of it to a crossmember on the header using a 1/4-in. bolt and ran it up through the floor of the cab. I use a piece of 1/8-in. welding rod as a sight guide on the stick in the cab. The idea works fine on my 1975 Gleaner but should work on other models, too."
