...I have two digital scales..one is a Coffey, the other is a Moultrie, both hanging-style.

I have been trying to do a draw-force curve...doggone scales BOTH shut-off after so many seconds!!:thumbs_do:thumbs_do

HELP..............anyone recommend a decent digital scale that DOES NOT shutoff....

THANK YOU!!!:thumbs_up:cool:

A few days back, someone posted about a luggage scale bought at Walmart. I picked one up for about $8.00 and gave it a try. Works perfectl. Indicator needle moves a marker up that stays put at the breakover weight and the indicator drops back down to the relaxed weight. I made a strap loop that goes through the handle and slips over the end of my garage door track. Hang it up, put the D-loop over the hook and pull the bow down. It goes up to 83 lbs. and although it looks a little fragile, if it wears out after a few years, an eight dollar replacement doesn't sound too bad.:thumbs_up

The ebay link is likely to old. Have to do a search on ebay to find something running now.
