This handsome double-pan laboratory balance was "decommissioned" by a university in the late 1960s - replaced by electronic balances. Carrying the original inventory number 17, it has been in my possession since 1973. I have kept it in working condition, including a recent repair of the sash-weight pulley system that supports the vertical door, using high quality 50-pound-test braided fishing line (the door in open position is shown in photo 6). The times I have done it have required the use of several four-letter words! Included with the balance is a set of student-grade weights and a rider wire for the balance beam.
