Yes sir! But I like Jareds idea using a crane scale. It's alot of picking up and down with the weights.

Yeah me too, I tried last night using weights on my RGC and it takes alot of work and that was for the #130 mark.

Defo going to invest in a crane scale before end of the month

Awesome!

Maybe its the angle of the photo but it looks like there's a gap between the device and the rack, is the gripper level?

Also don't forget to protect the knurling with something.

I find that my gripper slopes down because the barrel is 21.5mm but the IM grippers are around 19mm but wanted to make it possible to rate RB grippers as they have around a 21mm handle.

Do you put anything on yours to keep it flat to the metalwork like a tie wrap or hose clamp?

You can always shim the gripper, wrap some tape around it, or something like that to protect it, and keep it flat.

I would suggest something soft to protect the knurling.
