quadrant balance

a device used to measure grammage of paper

COMMENT: A sample of paper 100 × 100mm is taken and placed on the scale; the grammage values are printed on a semicircular scale, the pointer runs across the scale when the piece of paper is spiked on a pin. The readings on the scale give the gsm (i.e. the weight of the piece of paper multiplied by one hundred).
