I don't get to be on TV.

One of the manufacturers of the Scales that I service was recently featured on cable TV's Science Channel program, "How It's Made".
Quote:
The episode will air first on the Science Channel Nov. 21, 2008 at 8 pm CST. It will then go into syndication to be shown on other channels, such as the Discovery Channel. The episode will be translated into over 3 dozen different languages to be shown internationally.
You can view the 5 minute video from a link on the Manufacturer's Website:
Cardinal Scale Company

I thought this might be of interest, so you can see how a scale determines how much your trailer weighs!

Neat,

I didn't realize they were accurate enough to catch the man calibrating them at 140 LBS

A typical truck scale reads in 20 pound (or 10 Kilogram) increments and have a capacity of 100,000 pounds (or 50,000 kilograms). They are required by international law to display to +/- 0.1% of the applied weight, within the limitations of the increment size.
