I read something a while back that guys were using a file to reduce the weight of the aftermarket pans or adding silver solider to the base to add weight if need. Just need to know the weight o the stock pan.

Some parts of a balance/scale require serious precision. All the wire hanger needs to do is be strong and stable enough to support the pan in the same position every time, and have a mass that allows you to adjust to zero. If things work out for you the same way they work out for me, then soon after you make a hanger you are happy with you will find the original one!
