In the Atrium of the Ministry of Magic, there is a Security Desk that is usually manned by one guard. At this desk sits the Wand weigher, a device that examines the characteristics of a visitor's wand. All visitors must present themselves and their wands at this desk upon entry to the Ministry.[1] It caught fire during the Duel in the Ministry Atrium, and it is unknown if it was rebuilt.[2]
