    A balance scale is used to measure weight. The item you want to weigh is placed on one side of the scale, then the scale is balanced using labeled weights on the other side. Once the scale balances, the weight of the labeled weights tells you the weight of the item. Shop for a range of balance scales from sellers around the world on 1stDibs.
