Just got this scale....
    #1180074 - 12/30/02 03:10 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Today i just bought this scale that weighs a 10th of a gram, and the instrutions say i have to calibrate it with a 100g weight... well i don't have a 100 gram weight... how can i test this to make sure it weighs correct... like what is the weight of say a penny so i can test it that way?

How big is it? Maybe you can take it sportsmart or whatever and use one of their weights.

I love my lab scale. I picked it up in a trade, that I came out on the far better end of. It weighs down to the .01g, and has a balance built into the back. It is so sensitive that it reads a clean, new penny as 2.49 grams but a clean older penny as 2.48g, since the metal has been atrophied due to years in peoples' pockets.

I would recommend these to anyone, especially if you do research or use anything that requires great sensitivity. I have seen affordable deals on both auctions and chemical supplier's web sites for around $150.
