Balance Beam...nice one!
Bill Phillips: Isn't t just And Avery are still going in the West Midlands
What a nice old instrument!
( I saw Birmingham, and immediately thought of Alabama - where my father was born... silly me! )
Bill Phillips: The company is still going but is now owned by Illinois Tool works. So it could have been the Birmingham with the emphasis on the last syllable

Hmm...I wonder what they weighed on this fine example of British engineering?

Let's weigh the baby while we're here.

Quite an unusual set of scales.
Bill Phillips: They were a familiar sight once. I used to love the weights

Now I can remember these sorts of scales; I used something similar at school for measuring out stuff in chemistry lessons. There we're a common sight in shops, too.
Bill Phillips: They were indeed. Measuring out a quarter of sweets!
