Where do I find a tongue scale?

I don't really want to buy a tongue scale because after the first few trips I probably wont need it anymore. I cant find anyone that rents a tongue scale either.

I have passed a couple of "closed" weigh stations but every time I consider unhitching somebody drives up and makes me nervous.

Would appreciate your advice.

My guess is so it can float a little.

I know this does not help the OP since he is in the Seattle area and I am in Houston.

But if anyone in the Houston area would like to borrow a Sherline Tongue Weight Scale I have one and would be more then willing to loan it to another forum user.

To the OP: I'm in the South End area and own a Sherline Tongue Weight Scale. If you are interested in seeing if we are close to enough to borrow it you can PM me for more details.
