History

This inspection mirror was bought and improved in stiffness by Ian on February 17, 2016, after he had to fashion an improvised inspection mirror a few weeks prior, and other members had expressed desire to have one more recently. He intends to further upgrade it with LEDs to illuminate the subject being inspected and a hook for hanging it.
