Based on the principles of electromagnetics, Newall's Spherosyn, Microsyn 10, and Microsyn 5 scales consist of a tube, constructed of stainless steel or carbon fiber weave, filled with a column of individually graded steel balls.  The balls are set under a pre-load at the factory.  The tube is then sealed.
