Product Testing and Calibration

Balances / Scales

If you buy a balance (scale) for over £15.00 we check it before dispatch. We check that it powers up, then we check that it is weighing accurately (if not, we calibrate it). The only exception is for approved scales (typically £300.00+) which are calibrated by Trading Standards and do not require us to check them.

For those costing less than £15.00 we merely check that it powers up, it is for you to keep it calibrated each time it becomes inaccurate – you get what you pay for!

Electronic Gold Testers

We check that it powers up, then we check that it is testing accurately (if not, we calibrate it).

Electronic Gem Testers

We check that an analogue display is reading correctly (if not, we calibrate it).

We check that a digital display shows the correct number when powered up (that indicates it is working correctly), we cannot check the accuracy and there is no facility for us to calibrate these.

Magnifiers With Lights

We insert batteries and check that it works (the batteries are included in the price) - except for bulk orders, you supply your own batteries, we do not check them.
