I found this Vintage Scale at flea market, it cost me 10€ , a very good price i think , the woman who sold me this beautiful scale explained to me that her parents bought in 1920 to sell food to the market every day until they died…
This is a very durable scale and after this restoration will survive for another 100 years.
I don’t know if you seen my other scale restoration, if not pleas watch and tell me what you think and which restoration do you prefer, so i decided with this restoration to not make any paint because many of you requested this, for protection of the metal i have utilized a special produc an inhibator for rust , this produc is a thick oil which become very hard after 24 hours and don’t let air and water touch the metal;
I replaced all the screws because they were very rusty.
