Weighty Matters features a variety of balances and scales located in the museum and Machinery Shed donated from a variety of sources. What is the difference between a balance and a scale? Explanations and examples of both abound. Further examples can be found in Stewart’s Menswear window.

The Object of the month for June featured the Mechanical Lab Balance which was donated by Mullumbimby High School. The excellent booklet explains how it works and gives interesting details on Units of Mass and their historical development.
