Abstract : The object of the invention is a calibrating rack for measuring instruments, for example, of a wind-tunnel balance, which contains loads suspended on flexible filaments passed over rollers. The precision of the measurement of the forces is improved by a thread connected with the instrument to be calibrated which tightens the filaments of suspension of various loads. The points of suspension of the various loads are fastened on a horizontal bar elastically connected with the basic stand and shifted in the axial direction by the difference of the loads on the platforms (disks on which the weights rest).
