Title: Scale for very small measures?
Post by: gimmeales on March 02, 2010, 10:31:08 PM
Hey all, where can one find a scale that will measure in grams, say for spices and water treatments?  (i.e. very small amounts my kitchen scale doesn't do)

Cheers!

I use a reloading scale that measures in grains.  15.43 grains=1 gram.

Electronic scales used by ammunition reloaders measure very small increments.

If you prefer to shop locally, try a head shop (you know, stores that sell equipment made for perfectly legal tobacco use).

Awesome - thanks everyone!  My dad used to be an avid re-loader, he may even have one laying around.

Looks like a nice deal. And the latest Amazon reviewer tells us he uses it for weighing drugs. Oh No! :o

Idiot.
