It looks like you are in a cash driven business involving scales. Hmmmmm.

But just to third the test results so far. The US Mint and hence the RipOmeter is a force to be reckoned with. Preglued stacks makes it a LOT easier.

74 nickels at a bit over sea level on planet Earth.

He means it took that many to bottom out I'm sure. Actuation is only halfway through the stroke.

Yes, but we are no longer measuring key switches, but nickels instead. I got them halfway, somehow. And then it is kind of hilarious to see the lab guy being followed by two guys who repeat his measurement with their toys.. to confirm?
