Triple beam madness

Ya Jim I've been down the triple beam road. It took awhile. Very accurate once set up. I rigged up a definitive point or fulcrum that the big end rested on on the scale platform and a stationary pivot on the small end and got very consistant repeatability. With patience the triple beam is very precise. 1/10 of gram is way way more than many race shops balance to. Myself, I wouldn't balance unless I could accomplish rotating as well as static weight. Digital scale is the way but the ol triple beam was around. Let's see now, what was it that I used to use that triple beam for anyway............?
