Default Corner scales

Got these a year or two ago but decided to spend the nearly 1k on digital scales (Had money burning a hole in my pocket at the time I guess....), so these are up for grabs.

They use standard bathroom scales and you just multiple the number by 3 to get your corner weight. Great for the new guy or someone who only has to work with one car......... Or anyone who doesn't feel like paying the 700-1200 for a set of digital scales (the money saved can buy a calculator and a lot of paper!).

Walmart has the scales for 10 dollars each here (you need 4 if you hadn't figured that out yet....)-

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Pick-One-8...cales/14706640


200 plus ACTUAL shipping takes them. They are now in a box and ready to ship.

*Edit* 6UL, Buick, Jack, and anything else not associated with the scales in question is not apart of this package, but everything is for sale at the right price.

And the rest of the picture. The money will be spent finishing the car in the last picture.

The 3X weight magnifies the error in the wal-mart scales. How far off are you from your new digital beauties?

Haven't tested them, but in class we used some like these and they were fairly accurate against the longacre scales with only a 5-10 pound variance.

Or from now on, every day these don't sell, I'll pick off a barn cat.

Save the kitty, buy these scales....

No more barn cats left. 50 plus shipping.

One more week and then this pile of steel is getting cut and scrapped.

Say 75 and whatever I have leftover from it I'll send back to you.

Its a big heavily padded box with some weight to it.
