    The carpet is a low pile stiff carpet. Haven't had any issues with static yet but that's a really good point!

    Living With Powder Scales Sub
    Static Electricity & Magnetic Fields
    Keeping a clear space around you scale. Static electricity near digital or balance beam scale can affect measurement accuracy just as much as a stray air current. Always use a powder pan made from metal or from static dissipative plastic . You can also wash you scale's pan with a little dish soap and allowing the soap film to dry on the pan. You can also occasionally wipe the pan with a non-scented frabic softener sheet to achieve the same results.
    Keep items made from plastic away from the scale, including plastic or Styrofoam loading blocks, die storage boxes, ammunition storage boxes, Akro bins, etc.
    Don't forget the static on your body! If you have a carpeted work area or leading to it you can build up a rather large charge. A static spark to electronic powder scale is not only bad for accuracy; it can destroy the scale’s circuits! Even if you don't build enough charge to cause a spark, you can build enough charge to affect your powder scale’s accuracy. You can spray the carpets in your area with the commercial Static Guard TM or make your own witha spray bottle containing a tablespoon or two of fabric softener in a pint of water. Spray either directly on the carpet. Also, touching a grounded metal object once in a while will drain any charge from your body.
    If you have a Formica covered loading bench you should wipe it down with an anti-static preparation before doing any loading. You should also ground the surface by attaching a thin copper wire to the Formica with a screw and attached the other end of the wire to a grounded surface.
    Digital scales can be strongly affected by magnetic fields and electrical interference generated by various devices. Don't use a digital scale near any electronic device such as a computer, monitor, radio, or cell phone. Note that fluorescent lights can create interference. If you are experiencing a problem with your digital scale and you have fluorescent lights or electronics in your work are test things with the lights and equipment turned off.

    Good read. I do ground myself quite often when I'm measuring powder

    Got mine off amazon for like 54 shipped (prime). Actually getting two more to put in my garage for my woodworking and knife building stuff. Extremely happy with how it turned out. Came with all the hardware except the stuff to attach the plywood to the 2x4s

    My kit came today. I like the way you half sized the middle shelf. I'm going to blatantly steal that idea!
