R&D by a Liberal Arts Major

Ok... my true story. I worked in Research and Development
for the Brearley Company of Rockford, Illinois, manufactures
of "Counselor" scales, and long out of business. Four years,
skinny me just out of college, doing drafting and file work.

A "SCALE" is a kind of rack and pinion device, with the new
digital models sometimes having a very sophisticated little
strain guage... an electronic rack and pinion. But then...
if you get on and off the scale once or twice before finally
seeing what a scale will show as your weight, it really helps.

It's called "seating" the scale, sort of like giving it a few spins.
So many wonderful friends I remember from there... s-i-g-h
