STANTON INSTRUMENTS LTD
WORLD LEADERS IN BALANCE DESIGN AND 
WEIGHT MAKING BETWEEN 1946 AND 1968

This web site is a homage to Stanton Instruments Limited (SI in short), a now largely forgotten British company which specialised in the design and manufacture of high-precision balances and weights.

          

Though long out of business many artefacts and a certain amount of information remain of this great firm.

            

The aim of these pages is to make available and preserve what info I have on SI, to encourage people to come forward if they have any more material and to showcase SI products. In this sense it is also a kind of virtual museum of a bygone era of balance making.

I want to showcase SI (and other) balances and weights from my and other people's collections.

    

So take a tour through the virtual museum and marvel at the beauty and craftsmanship of a bygone era.

      

There are also some pages detailing the history of SI and its founders, A W Harrington and H M Stanley.

    

There is a slight bias towards technology since I am an engineer by trade - I'd ask you to bear with me: This fascinating subject is worth a little bit of detail.

      

There are also links to other sites of related interest and a contact page should you want to get in touch.
