Milk weighingAbout this object
When dairy farmers took their milk to the factory in cans the weight of milk in each can was required. One method was to weigh the can with milk, then empty the can, reweigh so get the weight of milk. The platform for the can hung from a shaft that could rotate. A counterbalance weight controlled the rotation. The weight on the platform was shown on a scale, on the right hand side.Maker
