I've used a small postage scale to measure out epoxy and it worked fine.
All I had to do was find the proper mixture by weight information, then put
in the epoxy to a certain no. of ounces or grams, then zero the scale and
add the amount of hardener that was called for depending on how much epoxy
was initially poured. It all goes into the same cup so when the epoxy is
added, you just mix and use.

A nifty device indeed. My brother once made a balance that used a razor
blade for the pivot, worked great but the screws would be better for the
epoxy. My only comment would be to repeat that the most accurate method for
calibration would still be to use a good quality scale rather than the
measuring the length from the pivot. Just fill with the desired amount of
resin, place on balance, and balance with the washer and mark it. Calculate
hardener, add on the scale, and rebalance and mark the second location.
Thanks for the inspiration.

for feedback. I like Tom Hamernick's idea to use two screws for the pivot
point. Even simpler than mine and just as effective.
