Grain scale
Pic GRAIN 20
Unusual grain scale, made by FAIRBANKS

I do not know anything about this scale. Did not found it in any book ! So help is needed !

The scale is graduated up to 60lb per bushel. The load bucket is lost ! The one which you see on the picture is from a other grain scale but fit nearly. ( 2lb bucket )




After the grain was filled inside the bucket, you can turn the filling tube by side !


Now is enough place to use the steelyard to weigh the load.

The graduation show the weight from 0 to 13 lb and on the second bar from 
10 to 60 lb per bushel

The scale was made of the following materials:
base = cast iron
column = steel
steelyard = brass chromed
filling tube and bucket base = brass
bucket = maybe also brass ( lost )
