Huge and rare Waymaster industrial hanging scale dating from the 1940s/50s, manufactured by the Precision Engineering Co (Reading) Ltd. This is a piece salvaged from a factory, and was used to weigh VERY heavy items. The dial shows the capability to weigh items upto 20 CWT (1 CWT is equal to approx 50kg!), so this scale would have been weighing items upto 1 Metric Tonne...... In working order, although there is a small crack in the glass (see photo for details), but in otherwise great original condition. Could be put to use, or just hung for decoration.
Measures approx 75cm tall x 48.5m wide x 9cm deep (dial is 48.5cm diameter)
