I bought a really cheap digital scale for general purpose use and it works great.  I think I bought it from an EvilBay auction for ten or fifteen bucks.

 

Tight lines,

Bob

Any digital food scale that weighs in grams or ounces will work. Weigh 10 weights and divide the weight by 10.

*28.35 grams = 1 ounce

I have used a small postage scale, pretty accurate for how inexpensive it was.

I just use the digital food scale that my wife keeps in the kitchen to measure out dry ingredients and meats. They measure in metric and imperial and go as sensitive as one gram on the metric side. Pretty sure it was like 10 bucks.

Try to find a scale that can weigh 1/8 or 1/16 weights, if possible.

 

Keep scale in your "man cave" or your wife or girlfriend, or both, will want to use it in the kitchen.

Would be a better idea if I was in Washington or Colorado.

I weigh terminal stuff all the time now. I would recommend something that weighs .0 of a gram. The scale I have happens to weigh to .000 but you don't need that accurate.

He's referring to a scale (could be electronic or mechanical balance beam) marketed for people that handload ammunition. The scale is used mostly to weigh propellant charges but is also used to determine bullet weight, cartridge case weight, etc.  Nothing special about the scales other than they are targeted to the handloading crowd, will always weigh in a unit of measure called a "grain," and will measure down to .1 grain (1/70000 oz). Many of the electronic handloading scales will also weigh in other units of measure as well (grams, oz, etc.).

Looks like this but I wouldnt buy one just to weigh the weights.  They are fairly expensive.

Yeah, a little pricey. I just need something that will put me in the ball park.

Hmm. Good to know. Might come in handy when the Zombie Apocalypse approaches.
