  • Patent number: 4303308
    Abstract: A rear view mirror having a planar mirror means and a convex mirror means disposed in angular disposition relative thereto. The convex mirror means has one end substantially co-planar with the plane of the planar mirror means and its other end, due to the angular orientation of the convex mirror, is spaced apart from the plane of the planar mirror. The spaced apart end of the convex mirror is disposed near to the vehicle driver and the substantially co-planar end is therefore disposed remote from the driver. The housing for the convex mirror has tabs approximately equal to the thickness of the planar mirror so that said tabs and the opposed longitudinal edges of the planar mirror means can be slidingly received within predetermined ones of a pair of transversely opposed co-planar channel defining members that together, with interconnecting end plates, collectively define the housing means for both the planar mirror means and the convex mirror means.

  • Patent number: 4302127
    Abstract: An apparatus capable of self power or being towed and specifically designed to distribute and/or apply cementitious material, and in particular, pervious concrete, over a given surface area such as a roadway or the like. A support frame has mounted thereon a distributor casing specifically configured to direct cementitious material in layer form along a transverse length relative to the direction of travel of the support frame. A delivery hopper moves transversely on the frame and along the length of the casing and serves to continuously feed cementitious material to the casing. Material such as pervious concrete is continuously discharged from the distributor casing by a percussive action imparted to it by forward motion of the frame. A blade element and compacting edge is adjustably positioned above the surface being treated and is attached to the casing to mechanically move therewith so as to compact the cementitious material as it is extruded from the casing upon mechanical actuation thereof.
