Antique Dayton Scale

Postby Bardrick » Thu Nov 24, 2016 2:11 am

I have a Dayton 30# scale, Style 170. Capacity 30lbs. , No. 144A. 4 to 60. The patent dates read from Sept. of 1895 tp December of 1904. It is in pieces and needs to be reassembled. It was my father-in-law's and he asked me to finish it for him. He died now and I love old things and want to reassemble it because I promised him. It worked well before he took it apart to repaint it and clean it up. Where can I go for guidance or drawings of how it goes together and gets recalculated? I owe it to him and need help!

ANSWER: Hi Keith,

The patent drawings may help you reassemble your scale but in order to do that you would have to have Patent numbers and/or dates.  If you send us patent dates at [email protected],  we can probably get numbers for you. If you have the patent numbers which may be listed on the scale  you can research them at http://www.uspto.gov/patft/index.html. If we can be of additional help, let us know.

Hope this helps.    Weigh Daily!!!

Thank you for the quick response. I do find a six digit number on a weight window bezel that is 396334.Could that be a patent number? Also a phrase that reads "When ordering will specify Design No. 87.G." The patent dates are as follows: Sept. 3,1895, re-issued April 28,1896, Pat. January 11,1898, April 24,1900 , May 28, 1901 , June 18,1901, May 19, 1903 , and December 6, 1901.

Hi Keith,

The number on the window bezel may be a design number or a serial number of the scale. The patent dates refer to the following patents:

September 3, 1895.     Patent number 545616.

reissue April 28, 1896 Patent number re11536

January 11, 1898       patent number 597300

April 24, 1900         patent number 648289

May 28, 1901          patent number 674833

June 18, 1901          patent number 676480

May 19, 1903          patent number 728569 or 728577

We could find no patent dated December 6, 1901.  So please check it again so that we can give you correct information.

Hope this helps.    Weigh Daily!!!
