    This is a Strait Boom Scale, I believe it from H.N. Strait Scales which also manufactured Monarch Scales prior to being sold to Fairbanks Scale. It is a model number 13286, that is the only number I can find. The workmanship and ingraving is great. It goes to 20,000 lbs. I think it used to be on a wagon scale.

    Can anyone help me with a little more information on this and what it might be worth?

      I just love this old tech stuff, at the time it was made it was 'state of the art'
