Title

[N143253], Technical Note, Thomas Peters Conant, June 12th, 1883

Editor's Notes

"Experiment to reduce ocsillations of balance beam." Using permanent magnet; sketch of this. Used permanent magnet capable of lifting 8 oz but "The effect was nothing and the balance shook as badly as ever." "Began the construction of a balance on following principle. The weight to be suspended by a spring and the lever raised by hand there being an arrangement by which as soon as the scale pan leaves its support, the movement of the lever is arrested by an electro magnet."
