Anyone here own the Lee Safety Scale? Is the way I am setting up the measurement correct?
I have that scale
First set it on a level surface. make sure the balance "beam" swings freely and only touches the base at the fulcrum point. Hang the tray
. Pull out the black slider lock pin in the slider and set the whole number (lower numbers) to 0, and line up the white line above in the zero, push the black slider locking pin in(so as not to lose your set point). now turn the balance adjusting screw so the beam pointer lines up with the mark on the base.
Sorry if you already know this :)
Ok, you want 3.2 grains, unlock the slider (pull out slider lock pin) move slider to left until lower lines up with 3, then slowly continue sliding left until the upper white line lines up in the .2 then push the slider lock pin back in. Now your set at 3.2
I hope I explained it correctly.
