Really interesting. What is the smallest weight that this can measure? Thanks.

Well, that depends on the counter weight you use, the smaller it is, the quicker the scale will react on small weights. Also, the dial uses 1g divisions, for smaller divisions you would need to adapt the PostScript file. Finally, the precision of the scale depends a lot on reducing the friction of the nails/needles which are used as pivots. For the last few letter scales I built I constantly got the calibrated precision to be within 1 gram.

Nice idea certainly have spent a lot of time to think and calculate. Super.

Thank you, Hristaki!
