    I locked my table, hooked the scale to the head support and tied a string to the scale end. Then just pull tension. An interesting tidbit is watching different strings stretch and lose tension at different rates. The luggage scale contunuously updates to .1 of a pound. I know it is not what the big time stringers use but then again, they are not stringing in a basement either!
