Off Topic 1940 Egg Scale
« on: June 24, 2011, 06:10:06 PM »
I found me a "Genuine Conversation Piece", in this Old Farm Master Egg Scale, Patent# 2205917. After doing my research, I have found 3 or 4 brand names on this same design. Still works fine mechanically, but I have not tested it against the different grade sizes of eggs yet, and doubt if I will. Lol

What does it say above 'Extra Large' ?
"This is a rock" ?

Very kewl piece, and the kind of thing you don't have to explain to puzzled visitors : P
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

Actually, now that I look at it closer, it says "leveling device", which I now know is missing! BUT, the leveling device looks to be a standard cotter key, that swings like a plumb bob, so I will add one to it tommorow. Thanks for pointing that out.

Very nice

May I ask were you got it
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
