Inscription.  Teamsters regularly delivered and picked up materials at Buckeye Furnace. Each load of raw materials that the furnace purchased, and pig iron produced was weighed. Scales were used to weigh the wagons that transported the raw materials and pig iron. Teamsters drove their loads onto the platform mounted on a fulcrum. A system of levels allowed the weight to register on the balance beam, located on the wooden box beside the scale.
