Default Need to Borrow "Fish Scale" For Bearing Preload

Title says it all. I need to borrow one to set the preload of the rear bearings. I have the spanner tool, just need a "fish scale". I can't do the "feel method". Southsiders? Thanks.

I'm on the north side but I have one you can use and I'm around all day. Scales on it are 0-50N and 0-5000g. It's medical grade for I.V. pole use. Pac-Sci brand.

I have one that you could borrow as well. It may take me a few minutes to find it in the garage as I don't recall seeing it in my tool box during the WBPP. I'm near C-470 and University. I picked mine up at the Discount Fishing and Tackle on Santa Fe just north of Dartmouth - was about $6 IIRC.

FWIW, Marlin sells a nice one. Might be worth throwing one into the cart the next time you order something. I have one similar to this one, you are welcome to it Mike. Arapahoe and Peoria during the week.

Based on Marlin's specs mine might not be helpful at all. 5000g is only about 11 lbs.

Might be a little low. You don't need 50 lbs, up to around 25~30 lbs is enough. But these things are usually available roughly by orders or range, i.e 0-5, 0-50, 0-150, etc. It's like torque wrenches. You need say 15 ft-lb and you can choose a tool that goes from 25 in-lb to 250 in-lb or 10 to 150 ft-lb, so you are either at the very top of one or the bottom of another.

Mike,

I have one as well if none of the other prospects work out. It is digital if that makes a difference. I was taught the "feel" method by Three Wheel Ben and it does work - Although I still don't trust myself so I check it with the scale and everytime I am usually close to spot on

No problem Mike. Don't let the digital fool you though...Picked it up at Harbor Freight if I remember right. I should be home after 6pm or so or I can leave it in the milk box for you

I should have mentioned that I'll need it back sort of quick as I plan to get my front axle rebuild done here in the next week or so before CM. Shoot me a PM and we can figure out what works for you.
