I have a set of Limited Millennium Edition dial scales and loaned them to a mate for his french trip sadly with 4 of them crammed in a motor my scales took a battering and the case front was badly scratched and cracked
he of course paid for the repair when I phoned Reubens explaining I needed a new case they said dont worry a service we replace anything that needs it so £28 and they came back like a brand new set and of course the accuracy is all spot on and a record given of the weights both before the service and after
I would recommend anyone with an old set of scales instead of replacing get a service

Big thumbs up from me as well. The screen on my 9000's was barely visible so I sent them off with a cheque for £20 and they sent me a replacement within a few days.

What I've always wondered is, do digital scales measure in pounds and ounces or pounds and fractions of a pound?
I.E. Is 2.5lbs - 2lb 8ozs or 2lb 5ozs?
