This plaintive question is posed by an inquirer who lives in south London.
“I want to replace my ageing bathroom scales and cannot find a suitable replacement.
I prefer mechanical/dial to digital and want a nice clear display in kg, but all the ones I’ve found have both stones and kg, with the result that the kg is small and therefore hard to read (as are my current scales). I have found several which have kg only on the packaging but not on the actual product – there’s one in B&Q which has ‘large, easy to read dial’ on the box and a picture of a kg-only dial which is indeed easy to read, but when you look inside the kg has actually been substantially reduced in size to accommodate larger markings in stones.
Any suggestions? Preferably an actual shop where I can go and pick one up without getting on a Eurostar, as collecting large mail from my nearest sorting office is a pain!
[Although “an actual shop” is requested, responses on internet sites and mail order could also be of interest to others]
