A few days ago I mentioned a problem that I was having with my Lyman auto-dispensing scale. I thought I'd send an update so I don't leave anyone with an undeserved negative impression about the product.

It now reads exactly the same as my RCBS 5-0-5 with the calibration weights. Here is what I did:

1) I've relocated it so it sits as perfectly flat as I can make it. I think I'm going to make a vibration absorbing base.
2) I cleaned out 3 kernels of powder that were trapped in the scale mechanism.
3) I made sure to put the calibration weight right in the center of the scale when I calibrated it. (It seems to make a difference if the weight is too far from the center.)

Right now it's still reading a rock solid 308.6gr with my 20 gram calibration weight.

Chris.
