How to make a scale???
    #1943723 - 09/23/03 10:39 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

My friend has a little time, will be birthing his first cakes soon, but his wifey is starting to come down on him cuz she thinks he's spending to much money on this mushy thing. :devil: Anyway we had read somewhere that one could use coins and rig up an easy ballance type scale. only problem is, neither of us can find the link again. Anybody know the link or the different weights of US coins, or even a tec for a homemade scale???
Thanks!

yeah a nickel weighs 5 grams on the dot.
i believe a quarter is 7
pennys are different i think because after 198somtihng they changed form all copper to copper and somthing else, zink maybee?

anyways you can create a hanging balance,like the ones you see in front of court houses. although you can go to office depot or almost anywhere and get a mail scale, they weigh up to 4 ounces, in gram incriments. they cost $2.

Yeah what s2dope said, I already weighed coins for someone and here's what they weighed...

dime-2.2 grams
penny-2.45 grams
nickle-5 grams
quarter-6.05 grams

BTW I dunno what year the penny was, so if what zippoz sais is right which makes sense it might be diffrent.

Thanks!

how much do you think the weight can differ between a hand postage scale, and a digital scale?

the difference is not much, for a while i had a digi and a hand scale, i did comparisons between the two, at the lower levels it was on the dot, however at one ounce the hand scale was a little less than a gram off. also the digi was calibrated correctly.

when compairing my digi to my friends digi, his weighed my 100 gram weight to be 100.2, so digis are pretty close to another


you can also get a pretty cool digi, off of e-bay for only 30 bucks, search for the mx-200

Just go to the local post office and use their scale. Usually there is one out of the main line of sight. Be prepared and quick.

:lol: the first thing that comes to mind when you say that is some kid with a garbage bag full of dank smelling weed (you know the kind that stinks up the whole room) weighing in the post office. Dude I would much rather get ripped off or spend a few bucks for a handscale, then do that shit.

Lol, I disagree. It's doable. Just be quick as hell, that's all. Anything to save money, that plan is. Heh.

Well the poster stated about a birth day...I am assuming its not a bag of dank hes weighing.
And for the dumbass who would do something so stupid as bringing a stinky garbage bag in - deserves what he might get.

What I was getting at is why not buy a fuckin hand scale for a few dollars, they're always good to have around anyway.

great pic longshot. That's a boy that knows what he wants, and isn't afraid of going for it! Yea someone stole the scale at our local PO anyway. I could just see someone going into measrure for capsules. They get their shit all spread out with little piles of ground up mushies lined up on the back wall. :smile:

False.

I have a very good digital scale, not all nickels weigh 5g exactly. Many go from 4.90 to 5.10.
