i always notice people asking how many mushrooms are in a given weight like an eights, it is almost impossible to give an accurat4e measurement this way, and i know scales are expensive, but what if we gave them a little help
if we were to find the weight of common household items like coins, paperclips, and so forth then all you would need to do to weigh somethiing out would be to get a triangular block, then put a ruler or something long and flat on it and slide it untill it balances in the middle, then the object would go on one side and the mushrooms on the other, when thee weight is equal the balance will be centered, its not the msot accurate form of measurement but it would work for rough guesses and cut down on these types of questions,
that's a sweet hook up man. i was going to suggest something about a nickel weighin 5 grams and jerry riggin that, but i didn't know 1ml weighed 1g...so that's even better. i just bought a cheap ass postal scale..

Get a digital, theyre only like $100 bucks and they work great. Especially weighing out smaller amounts. I used to mess with other hand scales, and now I wish I would have just gotten a digi right away.
