Title

[N143257], Technical Note, Thomas Peters Conant, June 18th, 1883

Editor's Notes

"[Fleming?] noted the difficulty of using a spring between such wide limits as from 10 mgs to say 100 gms = 1 to 10,000." Wants to try "throwing only a portion of the weight upon the spring. In other words, to roughly balance the plate by weights and obtain the fine reading by the spring." Sketch. ie, using c/wt. Seemed to work OK. p. 261-263 shows three sketches for reducing scale oscillation.
