Balance Windshield

I am about to order a new balance that has readability to 1 miligram but unfortunately does not include a windshield.

a) How are they made, and is it feasible to build one yourself?

b) If you can build one, where would you begin?

Plexiglas my friend.
Just put that balance in a Plexiglas box, attach a few doors/windows, you're good to go.
Drill a few holes for the wires.

Unless you don't have the room to store it.

I wouldn't advise attaching anything to the balance that does look like any attachments are meant to be made, otherwise it could make measurements inaccurate.

That's how I'd go about it.
