watch those batteries

I had my first failure in a long time due to the electric scales battery running low, i had made 1 dough and when weighing up for the second noticed that when i was weighing the smaller amounts of just a few grams that i seemed to be adding more and more  so when i stopped i noticed the scales were slowly counting down on their own! A quick battery change  meant at least the second dough was OK. unfortunately the fist was little more than a cattle lick being far to salty. SO WATCH THOSE BATTERIES

I found a connector at Radio Shack that made it possible to convert from a battery to one of those "plug in" DC power supplies.  Cost was just over $3 and it's much better than worrying about low battery power.

Ah! but when i go bush i would need a very long extension cord, i am just glad  it happened this week before the gold prospecting trip around the Meekatharra area. The 9v battery has probably lasted 4 years, the point being it would have been better if it  had just died, no info is better than bad info (wrong weights).


Mind you i would have just gone back to cups and teaspoons in the bush, thats if they are not storing the nuggets. look forward to some golden moments and posting on camp oven bread soon.
