I actually already had the scale to use as a luggage scale and it has made a couple of flights around the country making sure my wife's luggage doesn't get too expensive at the airport. I've saved enough in overweight bag fees to pay for the scale several times over.

However, when I initially acquired it, I was also thinking that I might be able to find a way to put it to other uses. So I wanted the high weight capacity for luggage but the accuracy for uses like this.

When I first started mulling over the idea of building a spring tester some time back, it was because I wanted to be able to run a test on magazine springs, and I still plan to get around to that. But in the interim, I've also gotten more interested in the dynamics of recoil-operated autopistols so I'll probably use it to gather some data to help me better understand that topic.
