Remember the thread where we talked about the difficulty of seeing the bubble level on a head (NN3/5)?

Well I stumbled across this ---

Use a little mirror.
In the old days I used a Sinar Handy camera, it had a little door with a plastic round mirror.
From all positions the bubble was visible.

Looks a nice gadget but it is about a 2 inch cube. If it were a 1 inch cube it might be more suitable... a dental mirror works fine

Something like it could be made smaller. The nice thing about it is that the mirror is below the bubble so you can still look down on the bubble if you need to.
