Thanks Darly for the interesting Lao fonts. I haven’t figured what to do with them yet. But they will find good uses soon.
If you happen to like scales…
This is an interesting device. It is a 10-ton crane scale. If you want to weigh wheat, fishes or rocks by the ton this is great, but will set you back $895.00. What’s neat is that it is an analog device meaning that it won’t need an energy supply. The dial moves in a predictable manner and usually helps when you like to see the gradual change in weight. Digital scales [image] requires battery and useful if you just want to know how much things weigh. Digital scales are reserved for those in a hurry. See more scales at scalesgalore.com.
The electrical connector is connected to a switch inside and can be set to a certain weight [see image.] This switch can shut off any loading machine.
The device is stored in a beautiful case [see image] all images are from scalesgalore.com.
And this is how it works I captured from the US patent office. Patent number 2,287,299, invented in 1939. As the core steel flexes, the arm spins the dial. The design seems simple I might want to try to build one.
