My scale went out and in a bind I thought I could use the bathroom scale. Well it will not register under 25 lbs so i tried standing on it with the malts to get a weight. Problem is I can stand on it 3 times with the same amount each time and get 3 different weights. Guess I will just wing this one.

NOOOOOOOO!!! balance it against another known weight. A little string and the knows weight tied to one end and the unknown to the other balanced on a nail or a coat rod...Dont be a fool, make your own tool!!!!
