Today’s object is a set of red scales from the Salter brand. This type is called a Postal scale, and it is a measuring instrument for determining the weight or mass of an object. Weighing scales are used in many industrial and commercial applications, and products from feathers to loaded tractor-trailers are sold by weight.
