The Wedderburn story began in London. Here Jabez William Wedderburn worked in his family's scalemaking company. After realising that his brothers would inherit the business, Jabez decided to ply his trade in Australia. In 1896 he opened Wedderburn Scales at 88 Liverpool Street in Sydney.

With no help from home, the early years were difficult. Although a qualified scalemaker, Jabez was forced to work as a coal miner, a wharfie and a professional runner. But by the turn of the Century, he had five employees and was known not only as a proficient mechanical scalemaker, but he was also well known with city weights and measures officials.

He would often challenge the local establishment to "press" the scale weights and rumour has it he never lost a bet.
