With any scale, the less you move it around, the better it will be. I place my scale on a shelf above my bench. Keep it covered to prevent dust from settling on it.

Fred..

I really like the dedicated shelf idea. I have some padding from my wife's attempt at working out that I've been using to put under my concentricity/squaring gauges and my spine gauges I built for my arrow building bench. Would this padding help with vibration? What about static, frequencies?
I want to set it up right the first time. Thanks!!!

Hodge..

That's good to hear bro!!!!
I appreciate your telling me that. But I won't get bent like a dogs hind leg if anyone has bad to say. I'm not hung up on brands and such.

I don't think padding is necessary or even desired. You want the scale to sit flat & ideally, never move, keep out of any drafts. On the wall should eliminate most bench vibrations or at least really limit them.

The gempro comes with a mousepad that does absorb some vibrations. I should do the same for my A&D FX120 as it changes readings if I am walking around or using the press

That is more likely air currents, not vibration, unless your bench is on an elevated wood floor??

Well I really like the gempro and my confidence is a lot higher now. When I get powder charges at or near max in the future this scale will work great for me. It's so precise.

I have a friend who's got one. Checked it with my checkweights and it was good to go. Seemed to be a great scale. I wouldn't mind having one, myself.

Lol, it is a great scale and GTJon actually suggested it to me when I was in the market. The only complaint is its too accurate and OCD habits get in the way.

Hey, I figured if you wanted to chime in, you'd do so. Didn't want people hounding you via PM asking your thoughts on it.

And this is what I get for being mindful of your privacy. Hmph! :lol:
