Well, you won't really need shades but, you won't have a problem reading your weights thanks to the two LED displays on the Jennings TB600. There is a display on the front and back of the scale, just in case.
If you're not up for a brain numbing count-a-thon, you can always put the TB600 to work. The TB600 is great at counting and will let you know just how many pieces you have in no time. Just weigh a sample amount, push a few buttons then load this precision scale up with all your parts and pieces.
You can use the scale with the backlit display, or you can program the display to stay off and conserve battery power.
No matter where you plan on doing your weighing, you can be sure air drafts won't be able to interfere. The TB600 has a removable wind-shield to keep drafts, including those from breathing too close to the scale while you're weighing those ever-so-precious pieces of whatever it is you weigh, from messing up your weight readings.
Cleaning up doesn't have to be a hassle. A removable platform makes cleanup easy, and so you don't worry about rust or tarnish, the platform on the TB600 is made of stainless steel and stays shiny.
Sometimes, having unwanted weight on your scale is just plain unavoidable. Don't worry your pretty little head. The TB600 has a tare feature that will remove weight from your readings with, literally, a push of a button. Just put your weighing tray, bowl, scoop or whatever on the scale and press the "TARE" key. Now the scale is set back to zero and you can add the goodies you really want to weigh.
If you're in the middle of a weighing tournament or you just don't want your scale to turn off ever, you're in luck. The Jennings TB-600 has a programmable auto-off that will let you choose when and how this bad boy turns off. You can tell this precision scale to stay on forever (at least until the batteries die), or to turn off automatically after a few minutes of inactivity.
If your TB600 needs a little tune-up, don't worry. You can calibrate this compact scale all by yourself. It's so easy, all you need to get your TB600 back in tip-top-weighing shape is a 500 gram calibration weight and, of course, the TB600 user manual.
If you weigh your stuff with the same unit all the time and aren't too excited about pushing that little button to get to the unit you want every time you turn your scale on, you're in luck. The Jennings TB600 will remember the unit you're weighing with and will turn on ready to weigh in the same unit next time.
The TB600 has a built in liquid level indicator and adjustable feet to help you get it nice and level before you start weighing. Level scale = accurate weight readings.
