Re: Gunderson Powder Scale ???
A recent acquisition from an estate sale, one of the items I think I have is one of these scales. I understand that only a couple hundred of these scales were ever made back in the late 50's or early 60's.
The unfortunate part is that it is in pieces and doesn't appear to be complete. And, some of the parts might be damaged - as in possibly crushed or bent and some are burnt. This may have been in a fire a very long time ago. If I could find some pictures and/or drawings/sketches I might want to try to re-construct it.
I went to the estate sale looking for old wood working tools and came away with a motherload of reloading stuff - tools, brass, expendables and notebooks. The parts of the scale were in an old shoe box that someone had written "gunderson scale" in china marker. When I found it, the box had about 1/4" of dust on it under a work bench and the only wood working tools I found was a spokeshave and a wooden plane.
