How to level scale pads
Posted 01-06-2013 01:12 AM
the best one i have found is this, and can be easliy made DIY though this one is only ~ $20.
it has marks on the cylinders which i do not trust, nor do i need to; what i do is put both tubes on the same pad, use a zip tie on each cylinder that is snug but can be moved up or down on the cylinder. set them both the same height with the amount of water in the tubes and all air burped out. make sure that you view the air bubble the same way each time( from same angle, with same eye etc.) and this thing is super easy and accurate.
this is now your level height for all the scale pads. leave one tube on the first pad that is already leveled with the carpenters level. now just move the second tube to the next pad. since all 4 pads were already leveled using a carpenters level, you can now just go around and raise/lower each pad to be = to the first one. turn each corner of the pad leveler the same amount and the pad stays level as its raised/lowered.
I got one of those and it leaked in no less than 3 places
