When you need a 20 inch bench scale and there is none commercially available in the entire world from any of your suppliers you have to get creative. We produced this beauty in house for a customer to replace an existing scale that has been giving them issues. From two sticks of stainless box tube to a fully functioning scale it was fun to see this thing come to life. When we fabricate something in house we put a tremendous amount of thought into design to keep it rugged and simple. Anything that comes off the Koehler scale welding bench will last a life time!
