Hello, welcome to my blog. My name is Jerri. I used to work at the landfill, weighing trucks and levying fees so trucks could dump off loads of rubbish. As a lover of all things mechanical and techy, I was always interested in how our scale worked. Although it was outside the scope of my post, I always wondered how to keep the scale accurate, how to maintain it and how to be safe around it. Call me a 'nerd', but in off hours, I loved reading about those topics. I no longer work for the landfill, but I decided to create a blog about these topics. If you work with or around scales, please explore these posts. I plan to pull from the best practises and research to create interesting and informative posts.
