Dieter Schmid's Fine Tools


They still exist: analogue scales with a pointer instead of a battery. These scales offer perfectly acceptable accuracy and are just the ticket if you prefer to read off the weight by means of a pointer. Both the form and the conspicuous green coating suggest an item from another time. The housing is made of sheet metal. If you want to place this scale on a sensitive surface, we recommend that you glue felt gliders to the underside. The sheet metal on the underside does have some sharp edges - all other parts of the housing are nicely rounded. The weighing platform is made of stainless steel. The scales are manufactured by the Japanese instrument maker SHINWA at its offshoot in China.

The white plastic knurled screw between the housing and the weighing platform can be turned to adjust the scale.
