Determining average stem weight

is there a script fot finding average stam weight ???

You can use the measurement tool and do it yourself.

And you can export the font and use an analysis tool like AFDKO stemhist on it.

I usually pick a stem by hand. Look at the stems in H, O, n and o and average that. Only if the uppercase are much heavier (>15%) then add one stem for upper and lowercase). The point of standard stems is to unify the stems, not to have a value for each small step.
