Section 2: Installation
Base Assembly
NOTE: The following descriptions refer to “Key#” (#4, etc.) to describe parts. Use the
parts list and Key# in the list to identify all such parts.
1. Place the Platform Sub Assembly on the floor upside-down, preferably on 2x4
blocks to raise it up off the floor, if possible.
2. Remove the cotter pins and washers from one side of the Axle Rod (#19).
Axle assembly includes an affixed cotter pin (#17), a 5” wheel (#16), and then
a flat washer (#18).
3. Insert the Axle Rod Assembly through the two axle rod holes, side-to-side.
4. Place one flat washer (#18), then a wheel (#16) over the other end.

5. Insert a cotter pin (#17) through the
Axle Rod.
Using needle nose pliers, bend
back both haves of the cotter pin
to secure the wheel assembly.
6. Repeat steps two through four (2-4)
for the second axle.
7. Center the axles in the base, and then
insert the four locking screws (#15)
into each of the tapped holes in the
bottom of the base.
Located directly under the axle
holes
8. Tighten the locking screws, and then
secure the Lock Nuts (#14).
9. Turn the platform over so it sets on
the wheels.
After inserting the four Cotter Pins, center the
axles, tighten the Locking Screws, and then
secure the Lock Nuts.

Section 2: Installation
Pillar and Beam Assembly
1. Thread the two (2) Pillar Support Rods (#1) into the tapped holes provided in the
base.
The end with the longer thread should fit into the platform (about 1⁄2 inch).
2. Place the Pillar (#2) down over the support
rods with the pillar cut-outs facing the right and
left of the platform.
3. Insert the Steelyard Rod (#35) down through
the pillar.
The bent hook on top; the loose Swivel
Hook on the bottom.
The hook opening should be toward the
platform when properly placed.
DO NOT remove the washers from the
Steelyard Rod.
4. Hook the Steelyard Rod (#35) to the Long
Lever Tip Pivot (#34).
Temporarily, hook the upper end of the
Steelyard Rod on the pillar cut-out.

Pillar and Beam Assembly, Continued
5. Place the cast iron Beam Support (#39) over the Steelyard Rod with the hook
facing to the right (when facing the scale platform).
6. Insert the Beam Cap (#45) onto the pillar rods.
The long side will be to the right.
7. Place Washers over the pillar rods, and then screw on the
two (2) Acorn Nuts (#44).
Hand-tighten only, at this time.
8. On the butt end on Beam Assembly, hook the bottom
Load Loop to the Steelyard Rod.
See image to the right.
9. Pulling the Beam up, hook the top Fulcrum Loop (of the
Beam Assembly) to the hook on the Beam Support
(#39).
The beam should hang loosely from the two hooks.
10. Insert the Beam Lock (#43) onto the front end of the
Beam Assembly.
Hook the bottom Load Loop
to the Steelyard Rod. Pulling
the Beam up, hook the top
Fulcrum Loop.
See image to the right.
11. Slide the Beam Lock (#43) over the
Beam and align it with the two (2) holes
in the Beam Cap (#45).
12. Fasten the Beam Lock to the Beam Cap
with the two (2) Hex Bolts (#46).
The handle faces the scale platform.
13. Hang the Counterpoise Assembly
(#54) from the Beam Tip Loop.
14. Set the Sliding Poise (#52) to zero and
hand tighten the screw on its under-side.
Check that the beam is straight and
does not touch the sides of the Beam
Lock.
Shift the Cap if necessary to
straighten, and then tighten the acorn
nuts securely with an adjustable wrench.

Section 2: Installation
Zeroing the Beam
Note: Check that the weighing platform "floats" on the levers' pivots and bearings and
does not bind or set to one side. The platform should return to a centered position if
moved to any position then released.
1. Unlock the Beam Lock Loop to allow the beam to balance.
The beam should move up and down freely coming to rest in the center of the trig
lock opening.
2. Balance the beam by adjusting the balance ball at the butt end of the beam, using a
screwdriver.
Turning the screw CW (Clock-Wise) raises the beam
Turning the screw CCW (Counter Clock-Wise) lowers the beam.
The scale is now assembled.

Section 2: Installation
Troubleshooting
If the beam will not balance using the balance ball, check the following:
•
Is the poise is at 0, and is the poise screw is snug?
•
Is the platform free and 'floating'?
•
Is the beam load rod connected properly on both ends?
•
Is something under the platform inhibiting the levers (floor debris)?
•
Are there any weights on the counterpoise hanger, and is it on the Tip Loop?
•
Is the beam hanging from the middle loop?
•
Is the Beam Lock Loop (#43) open?
Apply a slight pressure to the scale platform and see if the beam tip rises.
If it does, continue onto balancing step.
If it does not, recheck mechanical assembly.
If the scale beam still does not balance (beam rises with slight pressure), perform the
following:
1. Use a screwdriver to 'center' the balance ball at the butt end of the beam.
2. If the beam is up, apply small amounts of weight (BBs) to the top of the
Counterpoise.
3. If the beam is low, remove the Counterpoise hanger (#54), loosen the hanger rod
by turning and holding the bottom nut, and remove a small amount of lead shot.
4. Add or remove small amounts of weight until beam balances.
5. Secure the counterpoise hanger with added or removed weight.
