    Bruce,
    
    Most analytical balances are leveled with two screws up front, using a
    bull's eye level.  After you learn how, I expect it would be much
    quicker than trying to level using all three.  I used to first level
    side-to-side, then spin both screws equally in the same direction to
    level fore and aft.  Fewer headaches!
