as your correctly deduced you need some idea of equipment empty weight prior to beginning. for my home made boxes, tops and bottoms + frames at a story and a half mine came out to about 32#.

first you will notice that my bottom boards are made very flat... there is no landing boards. we then plotted total weight against tipping weight... did a little statistical hand waving and 2.4 X the tipping weight yielded the total weight.
