    what will you use it for?
    When someone tells you it can't be done, it's a reflection of their limitations, not yours.

      Nice one, again, Jacques.
      You must have a huge supply system.

              I think its a Deteco Junior Physician portable scale.
              I did a quick search, because this scale looks cool, and found this for the company.

              I found a couple of Etsy ads, but no actual historic info.

                I believe Darrin is correct, found some very similar scales on Ebay. Must be old as it tops out at 240lb, see a lot of people on a daily basis that could not use this scale.

                        Tube tester. I remember when the old B&W TV quit I'd scoop out all the tubes & head down to the local electronics repair place & test them all on the tube tester they had there. Buy replacements for the the bad ones & carry on.

                          The tester must be very old, this is the reply from the company: Thank you for sending the photo of the scale. Unfortunately, we do not have a record that can identify the production year for the scale in the photo and the scale is old enough that we do not have any current employees that can identify the scale. Thank you again!

                            Used one of those, very late 1950's and 1960's. Was a good tester.

                              Almost every variety store had a tube tester back in the day.
