Product Details

Programmable Auto-Off Feature If you've ever had your scale turn off on you in the middle of important measurements, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. You can program this pinewood derby scale to turn off automatically, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.

Bright Backlit Display This table top scale has a fancy backlit display to help you see your weight readings, even in dim lighting. Not only that! This digital scale's display will tell you if it's holding a weight, if you pressed the tare button, and the unit you're weighing with.

Adjustable Display Angle This scale makes it easy to read your weight readings whether you're sitting right in front of the scale, or standing over it. All you have to do is lift up the display to the angle that works for you.

Tare Feature The tare button on the front of this portable scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the item you're adding.

Hold Feature This feature lets you remove weight from the scale and keep the weight reading on the display. This sure comes in handy if you need to remove your item from the scale, or if you're having trouble seeing the weight display.

It Remembers The Last Unit you Used If your application needs weights in the same unit of measurement, (like ounces for instance), it can be a real pain if your scale always turns on ready to weigh in grams. It's a good thing this pine wood derby scale turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when you turned it off.

Easy Calibration This scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case you need to calibrate it, this portable digital scale comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. You'll just need to pick up a 200 gram calibration weight to get the job done.

90 DAY MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! If you have a problem with this scale, just send it to MyWeigh's warranty center in Phoenix, Arizona. They'll fix or replace your scale and send it on its way back to you within a week of receiving it. You should expect your replacement to arrive in about two to three weeks from the day you send the original off. Keep in mind that sometimes MyWeigh runs out of stock, which can cause a delay in the warranty replacement process.

Love the site. Love the scales. Was hoping the "Pinewood derby" Scales would have some little picture of a race car on em...just to make my coworkers smile. That's digging pretty damn deep for critique.

Great Scale
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
We just finished our Pinewood Derby Season with this scale and it worked great! We ran four pack races and the district race with it and it worked flawlessly. I took one of the reviewers suggestion and taped over the last two digits of the scale, so the viewable accuracy was only 0.1. We knew, however, that there were two more digits down there and if the scale read 5.1, there was no question the car was overweight. I really liked the ability to calibrate the scale and it did, in fact, require recalibration after arrival. But once I did that it was locked in and showed the test weights we had at 5.0 every time. The size of the weighing platform was mostly adequate to fit all the cars on (although we had a few which required some creative placement). One very nice feature, though, is the tare function so we could have put a spare body block on the scale, zero it out, and then put the car on top of the block. (Our 5.0 ounce test weight showed the scale still read accurately.) Having the backlit display was also very nice. We used only batteries, but having the AC adapter as a backup was one less worry.

I Like this scale and would recommend it to any pinewood derby people. Last year we had a lot of weigh-in problems, so I bought this scale. This year, no problems.

One Scale To Rule Them All...
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
This is the scale by which all others should be measured. The rubber dampening pad is not only a generous add-on, but also a lesson in accurate weighs - who knew!! The transaction was painless, and delivery was speedy. This is a scale that will be sure to see it's fair share of use around the house; mailing, Pinewood Derby, cooking, the possibilities are endless! To be honest, I am keeping this one just for me!

Works Great for PWD
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
This scale is a good one for Pinewood Derby for sure. It has a nice large base that accommodates most cars and a tare function for those that need to be propped on something to keep them from rolling off (usually only those with a maximum wheel base). We decided to block off the last two decimals to make check in easier because it was very crazy trying to get everyone to within +/- 0.001 of 5 oz. last year with our old scale. But having the extra precision is nice if you want it. I only wish it would let you set it to automatically round to the nearest .1 or .01 if you wanted, but for the price this was great and that's not a hard process to do in your head... For our PWD it was very helpful to have the 200g calibration weight. The scale seems to be sensitive to temperature, so being able to zero it out with the weight was a big plus. It also gave anyone who wanted to pre-weigh with his/her own scale the exact "standard" that we would be using on check in night. I'd also recommend the calibration weight for anything really that needs that last .001 oz precision.

I'm Glad I Kept My Pinewood Derby Scale
review-star review-star review-star review-star review-star
I purchased this scale in haste and thought about returning it... But I'm glad I kept it. Why? Razor sharp measurements. For anyone on budget but in need of accuracy this is the scale. I use it solely for lye & water measurements when I'm making soap; I make small batches 1 to 2 ponds and my weighed ingredients rarely exceed 8 ounces ... It's perfect. Which leads to my sole quibble of the Pinewood Derby Scale: Its maximum weighing capability in ounces is 10.580 and this great for a hobby/beginner Soaper who values accuracy. All said I highly recommend The Pinewood Derby Scale (and yes I watch South Park)!
