Has anyone had a problem with their 10/10 scale having a sticking point just before reaching the 0- line. Mine has started hanging up and then over loading. Then I have to dump the pan and start over. I've cleaned everything and have considered putting some lube on it. but it has the neopreme notches and I don't want to risk damaging them. I've been wanting the RCBS electronic rig, but budget has that on hold. Does anyone have a fix for this scale? Thanks!

 I don't have that scale, but if I were you, I'd get a magnifying glass and a good lamp and a flashlight and go over every inch of it looking for the smallest burr or bit of grime in the pivot and v-groove areas especially. Double check for correct levelling, too.
 
I'll assume it's magnetically dampened, so I'd also check for a loose magnet or an unusually strong magnetic area on the dampener area?
 
A little paste wax on the pivot points shouldn't hurt the plastic.
 
Good luck.

Check your magnet tower to make sure there is not cob webs (its happened to a friend of mine). Also make sure the plate on  the arm is secure and not loose or bent. My friend said to put graphite where the arm pivots.

 In your lower picture, it looks to me as though the flats on the top (pan side) side of the pivot points are not really in line with one another, almost as if one was twisted a bit?

Thanks guys, I wanted your imput before taking anything apart. I removed the "V" bases (not neopreme) and cleaned them well. They appear to be hard plastic and had some scuffing on the bases. The pivot points are not lined up, I presumed that they were suppose to be that way to align the arm. It does ride true thru its range. Before useing any lube or wax I went ahead and polished the pivot points with a fine wheel and so far it appears to be working better. I learned to reload on one of these, thats why I have this one. The one I was useing has worked smooth thru its full range for as long as I can remember. I can see the benefit of putting a stone on the points, but don't want to go there if I don't have to. Of the graphite or wax, which do you thing would be less likely to cause sticking. Ofcourse if I ues one it will be a very light application. To my knowledge these things are soppose to work dry. Evidently these scales aren't as popular as I thought. If you hear or think of anything else that might be helpful please share. Again Thanks!

That is a fine scale.  In addition to what you have done, make sure the pivot beam is centered in the V blocks (they used to be agate) and NOT rubbing ends on the clips that hold the blocks in.  IF they do touch, end friction can cause exactly the problems you are having.
