Tonywilk, thanks for the diagram, I was wondering what do those black lines between both the load cell and the wooden/metal bar represent. Does that mean I should attach them both to each other, or should I screw the load cell directly into the metal/wooden bar in this situation, and the black lines represent screws?
Thanks again Tonywilk, one more question, so does that mean that the straight bar is bolted to both bars?
By fixing another bar alongside it, you are now measuring the deflection of load-cell and bar, this will need a greater force to deflect the load-cell compared to it when it is on its own.
Yes, I definitely agree that 20kg is way too low, unfortunately, messed up and ordered the wrong straight bar, I asked for a 50-100kg one.
Yeh, did that on purpose; earlier the OP said (re: having a 20kg load cell):Yours, TonyWilk
