The Redding powder scale cost $6.50 in 1946. It is the beginning of the Redding line. Cast iron frame with a single riser makes for a scale that is super, super sensitive. The beam seems to swing forever if not stopped with a pencil. The aluminum tag is fastened in place with a single rivet, allowing it to be swung aside for access to the weight cavity. The design looks good but in application it is too sensitive for general use. It was replaced in 1948.
