Convenient Weight Marker When ya give this spring scale a tug, the weight marker will slide to the appropriate weight and stay there until ya move it back to zero. This will help ya out when you're weighing items that are a little on the heavy side. Load, weigh, unload, check your weights...it's really simple.
This Thing Sure Is Durable This mechanical scale was built to last. Inside the corrosion resistant housing you'll find stainless steel components that are attached to the stainless steel weighing hook and hanger. Whether ya want to use this as a fishing scale, hunting scale, bow scale, or just a great general purpose scale, you're good to go with this Weston.
LIFETIME MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY This Weston scale comes with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty against defects.
LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!
I use it to check the draw on bows, weigh packs, checked the resistance on home gym equipment, and when hunting season gets here I will use to weigh game with.
I read all the reviews before I purchased it.
first I wish to address the only bad review I read on the scale, if you adjust the scale to zero with no weight on it, it will cause you to back out the adjuster too far. I hung a 5lbs. weight on it checked and adjusted till it read 5lbs. then tried different weighs up to 95lbs. on it and was happy with the results (read at most around 2lbs. off, if you are looking for anything any more accurate be ready to spend THOUSANDS of dollars for it.)
a word of caution: the body is fairly tough and will give years of service, with proper care, around the house/workshop. if taken into the field the risk of bending/denting the body is much higher and the scale should be properly protected.
now for the pleasant surprises. I never noticed that there was a lifting eye at the handle end until I got the scale. it works great!
After waiting a week to get the scale ( which I bought to one for me and my buddy ) I hung one up in my garage and put 30 pounds on it one time after struggling with calibration. The next thing I know everything is separated the park and my stuff is laying on the garage floor. Apparently at the bottom of the threads where you calibrated it was on it's last thread just to get it on zero . I'm sending it back on Monday .
I'll give another want to try....
A very good product and excellent service from Old Will Knots!
I purchased this scale to check the weight on my bow for the upcoming season, great scale for this purpose. The sliding marker make it very easy to hold the scale and pull your bow then look at the weight afterwards. I ordered 2 more for friends that loved it also.
Works great, arrived quickly. I'm using this to get hanging weights when butchering piglets. The weight marker makes it incredibly easy to use. Great product, great service.
I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE SCALE. I LIKE THE MAX WEIGHT MARKER. I FIND THERE IS A MULTITUDE OF USES FOR IT.
Absolutely happy with this purchase. Especially like the zeroing feature and the max reading indicator. Using it primarily to measure draw weight of homebuilt bows.
I ordered this scale to be able to weigh the poundage of feed I'm giving to my horses. I needed to be able to weigh loose hay as well as cubed feed and this scale works perfectly. I even accidently dropped it on the ground and nothing happened. I'm very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Great product. Especially like the scale has zero adjustment.
Very nice scale. Excellent quality, accurate and good price. Just what I was looking for. Using it to check drags on big game fishing reels.
Great scales for the price, definately recommend these
I bought this product to check what poundage I was pulling on my bow and the kids bows. It seems to be very well made. I attatched a 25lb weight from some excersize equipment and zeroed in by using the screw at the bottom. I don't think I got any instructions on how to do this although it was simply enough. Very sturdy material and I'm sure I'll use it for more than just archery. Old Will had the best total price when shipping was added in. Thanks!
Scale is well made and simple to operate. I use this for building wooden archery bows. The bow poundage is determined by pulling the bow string withe the scale attached. The weight is registered and remains on the scale. I read the weight and reset the scale to 0. I am pleased with this purchase and the customer service and follow up by Old Will Knott Scales.
