    Does anyone know where I can find the egg weights that help to calibrate the egg scale? At at egg farm I saw plastic eggs with different amount of weights (one for large, extra large, medium, jumbo) that were used to make sure all the eggs were the right size coming off their egg grading machine.

    I have a set of 8 aluminum calibration weights in a wood box. I will be posting them and other egg products on Craigs List soon. All this stuff belonged to my late brother-in-law who worked for the US Government Egg and Poultry Division years ago. I am going to try and sell all of it for my sister. I personally don't know anything about how any of it is used so I won't be of any help in that regard.
    Let me know. It will be posted in the Seattle Washington area under collectables.

    Hi Brad,

    Thanks for your reply. Do you have pictures of these items? Did you put them on Craig's list yet? I am interested in the weights and would like to see the rest of the items. What are you selling them for? I am in Virginia.
