Salter weighing machine

Post by arrgee »

Rather good looking 'heavy weight' machine on eBay with a rather heavy weight price tag of £11,499 plus £200 postage. :shock:

Looks lovely. But can think of some more entertaining games for my 11k. Spend an evening with friends weighing yourselves....

Yes, it's a classic design but where do you put a thing like that :o . You MIGHT get it shipped for £200 but they would leave it on the doorstep and run away. No way 2 men in a van are going to carry that up three flights of stairs for £200 !OMFG! and it's not going to work very well anyway. These were spring-driven and were unreliable from day one. 100 years on you would be lucky to get it to read the same weight twice in a row if you stepped off then back on again (note that it currently reads 5 stone with nothing on the plate) dirtdog . On the plus side, it does have side rails so you can kid yourself you weigh less than you do by leaning on the rails. !!YIPPEE!!

Love the hand rails though ...
It says to me ... "if your arse cant fit between these rails you are not getting on"

all the best
