Rated 4 out of 5Â by DRS Good mechanical scale, more reliable than digital scales I looked at and tried out in stores
This mechanical scale is more reliable than several digital scales I had looked at and tried out in various stores. Perhaps because it is brand new, I step on and off of it three times each time I weigh myself, and usually go with the last reading, because it will vary a bit.
Many digital scales I 'test drove' would vary by several pounds in their display, and there was no way for the homeowner to "zero" them.
This simple mechanical scale did have an adjustment device for "zeroing" the scale.
Just be careful not to drop it, because there are delicate mechanical parts inside (one small shaft in particular that serves as a hinge pin for two levers) that could snap if the scale were dropped. (This is what happened to my previous mechanical scale.)
I do hope this product will continue to be available.

Your scale is much easier to read and has enough room to stand on comfortably. As a 75 year old disabled veteran it is difficult for me to see small numbers, but on your new scale it's as easy as pie. I like the contrast between the face and the pads. Overall I am pleased with my purchase and will recommend it to my friends.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jmaterne Excellent Quality
I loved the heaviness and obvious quality put into the construction of this scale. My only gripe might be that I have to check to make sure that the indicator is on the "0" before I step on, which is difficult for me because I have back issues. It does bring back memories of the scales that I used as a child, though, so it doesn't bother me all that much.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by MFS Constant vigilance for manual setting back to zero.
This scale replaces a similar one we purchased from VCS many years ago. There is a definite difference...this new one requires constant vigilance for manual setting back to zero. Hopefully it is accurate. The size and large numbers are great.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lorsie TOO ACCURATE!
Our old scales were 'friendlier'. Would recommend some type of magnifier as the tick marks between larger numbers are difficult to see. We are trying to locate one.
