I'm a service tech for a small scale company. Doing basic maintenance and calibration on scales of every type and size, as well as some networking and printer issues.

Scales is a kind of one foot in one foot out deal when it comes to IT, there are newer scales that requires knowledge about electronics and programs and different printers, but there's still a lot of mechanical scales (big truck/forklift scales) I want to focus on getting my A+ cert to be a pc tech

Nice. I do pretty much the same thing. I am a field service tech , servicing POS systems in grocery stores. I cover everything involved in the POS (CPU, printer, scanner/scale, monitors, keyboard/touchscreen, servers, networking, etc.).
