GENERAL INFORMATION. Someone at the Dia-Mel Company, manufacturers of diet food supplements, saw the old (1952) Jell-O Fat Man (SML-201) and requested a similar design.  Baston used the scale and modified the man (bald vs. hair and hands folded vs. hanging down).  The base advises that you "Balance the Scales."
