Easy Peezee Tongue Weight Checker!

I thought this was rather interesting: TONGUE SCALE

I m playing with the idea of modding my car dolly to include a motorcycle carrier on the front instead of investing $4K on one. Tongue weight is a concern of mine and I was looking for some way to measure it.

I got tired of screwing around with the wood and bath scale and just bought a real Tongue Scale.
