Here are pictures of how I installed my scales. Not my best work but I was

the system is installed and working...not 100% accurate when compared to a dti ..but the price was right and i had fun mounting the scales also i ended up with 2 nice chunks of aluminum that were used to mount the scales to it's former machine ....my thanks to all who input their time ..paul
