    I used a 550lb game scale from sportsman guide. I wanted the option of 450 pounds. I will be changing is to a commercial digital scale later.

    That is awesome. I need something sturdy like that. But I prefer to make my strings using the tag ends so only need two post.

    Now if I can just find someone to make me what I want

    I like the looks of your jig.
    You have probably been asked this a thousand times, but is this something that you might build and sell?

    Unfortunately I am not set up to build and sell these. It would be a great way to make extra money. But it would be costly. I make extra money by selling Custom strings.
    Thanks for asking!
