The SFG-2 can measure tracking force from 0.5 grams to 3 grams. I need to measure 5 grams.
1) Set the SFG-2 to 0.50 gram.
2) Place a U.S. one-cent piece (penny *) centered at the 1.00 gram mark on the SFG-2 balanced arm.
3) Place the stylus on the "Times 2" mark.
4) When the SFG-2 balances, the tracking force is 5 grams.
* A U.S. penny weighs 2.5 grams.
