I just picked up a cool antique scale like you might have seen in a drug-store in the good old days. It is over 6 ft tall, takes a penny to weigh yourself and if you dial in your weight and come within 5 lbs. you get your penny back. I want to restore it, so my question is... are there any vendors for repro parts, faces etc for these old scales??
It is made by C.R. Kirk and Company.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

I remember this topic about old scales. They are too cool.

I have bought a few small things in the past.

Just a satisfied customer.

Ck your email, I sent you a picture of the 3lb Toledo postal scale I just finished. I lean toward the smaller counter scales form the 1920's. Ok to post photos up if you have time.
