I guess this scale will give me a rough idea of my weight but is not very accurate. When I take weight off the scale it goes back to around 2 pounds never zero. Although if I pick it up and put it down then it goes back to zero. The knob to zero does not really do anything. I will say though when I step on it I get pretty much the same weight whether it started at zero or at 2 lbs. At lower weights it is really not accurate. With 10 lbs it measures around 12 lb. At 20 lb. it it varies between 14lb and 24 lb. So I guess if you want your weight within a range it is ok. Service dept says all scales are like this and since they all come from China not surprised.

This scale has worked like a charm. No problems with it or going back to zero

We previously owned a Taylor scale that after many years of service finally broke down. This scale has the same features that we liked before the large face and the plastic tabs to record where we weigh in for both of us. The ring around the dial now appears cheap. Our previous scale was a chrome metal this is white plastic that does not seem sturdy.

Doesn't stay adjusted to zero
This scale is crap. We had to adjust it after each use and it never gave an accurate reading. We would have returned it but with the shipping we'd only get a third of the cost back. So we just bought a different scale from another company and donated this one to Goodwill. Hopefully, someone will get some use out of it.

After buying four digital scales and giving away all four of them because they didn't weigh accurately, this scale is an answered prayer. Thanks so much for the easy way you handled the order and the prompt delivery. My analog scale works perfectly. It weighs the same each time I check it for accuracy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Replaced my digital scale because I never got the same reading twice in a row. I need to weigh myself every day for health reasons. The scale seems to be accurate and is easy to read.

I bought this scale for my 94 yr old aunt who wanted to replace one she has had for years. She was so excited to learn she could replace her old Taylor. It has been a godsend. She loves it and I am so happy to see her response. Thank you for keeping these on the mkt. Not everyone want a digital scale today. Love your product. Thank you!

Taylor 1130T Mechanical Scale
The first scale that arrived was defective,couldn't be set to zero. Customer service was entirely agreeable and helpful. We have since received a replacement scale that works fine. We are happy to have a simple mechanical scale that we can read from 6'.

I really like this scale, the only thing that is a bit inconvenient is that when you move it you have to recalibrate cause the needle doesn't always go back to zero when you put it on a different surface.

Fantastic Customer Service
Ordered mechanical scales because of trouble getting accurate reading (because of balance problem)with digital scales. Scales arrived in short time but did not work properly. Called and new pair, at no charge, were promptly shipped. New scales work perfectly. Can't beat the customer service -- GREAT!!

Portable and user friendly
Accurate, lightweight, and portable. I use this scale to take on house calls to weigh my elderly patients who are often slow and awkward to step up onto a scale. Digital scales are too fussy for this job. This scale is perfect for what I'm using it for.

First the scales are beautiful and the numbers are large and very readable. The red dial is soo nice. What i like abiut it most is it's plain and simple and old fashion. I looked in stores and all they had were digitial scales which were complicated. The product was delivered in 4 days. I am very pleased. I love your company. It reminds me of an old fashioned general store.
