    I have been aware of the suggestion about holding scales for thirty years and have swooped between both methods to make my own mind up about such claims. As long as you have an appreciation for hooks Law and donít imped the movement/position of the spring there is absolutely no effect on Avonís. Canít comment on other spring scales bit Iíve always been happy that my scales accurate. Iíve tested mine with weights and other scales attached to them to check their linear function.

    They may not be perfect but for me they are good enough.

    James I think you are worrying about something thatís pointless because itís out of your control. Why care.
