  • Patent number: 3961676
    Abstract: A weighing scales has a base and a platform supported by the base and adapted to support an individual. A transmission mechanism within the base is responsive to movement of the platform for causing pivotal translation of a graduated transparency. A beam of light from a light source is projected along an optical path through the transparency and reflected to a projection screen carried by the platform for read-out of weight. The light source is carried on a support plate which is mounted to the base by means disposed at two points on a line at least substantially parallel to the optical axis and coincident with the optical axis substantially at a fixed axis of the graduated transparency. The transparency is pivotally mounted on the support plate and presents a convex face toward the light source.
