That's a neat idea and nice execution! I've used a 20 ton bottle jack with a pounds calibrated pressure gauge for years that I bought for $35 for corner weights. I don't know if anyone still sells them pre-built, but there's several DIY posts online on how to do it.

Just as an update, I actually pulled the threads out that were tapped into the aluminum plate while reweighing something 6-7K, multiple times in a row. I ended up drilling out the holes and bolting all the way through the aluminum plate this time, so weak aluminum threads aren't going to be a failure point.
