Any Good Scales for under $40?
    #677883 - 06/14/02 09:00 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I see people say there are scales available for under $40 but I can't find any. Even on Ebay they're ranging over $40.

If I had a job I wouldn't care about paying full price, but I don't want to have to shell out a lot of cash right now but I do want a quality gram scale. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Boppity

Go to http://www.pawnshopper.net and then select MX Scales. They have them for 38 and 40 bucks.

Are postal scales reliable for weighing food? Since I plan on dosing in even grams I don't mind if it doesn't weight out to the .1. Hmm...thanks for the tip...I'll check a few of those on the websites as well. I always thought postal scales were calibrated differently than gram scales...but I'm no scale expert. heh

Thanks for the optional tip!

Love & Light,

Boppity

I believe that for mushrooms you need to be able to weigh to the tenth of a gram. ( .10 ) For example, the scale that weighs in 1 gram increments might show 3 grams, but the .10 increment scale could show 3.95 for the same material.

I realize that...that's why I'm wondering if a small finger scale from the head shop would be better for the time being. The scale I WANT to buy is $80.00 and I still plan on buying it once I'm employed again...but til then I still have shrooms growing and I'll need to be able to gauge doses.

I'm heading over to the head shop now to check on their gram scales. I know they're not the best but I think I've read elsewhere that finger gram scales are accurate to the .25g which is cool enough for now. I'd love to find an all-purpose kitchen scale that could be calibrated down to the .1g...that would rock on all levels. hehe

Thanks again for all the input!

Love & Light,

Boppity

The postal scal is not accurate for what you want Boppity! the +/- error in a scale that weighs in increments of 1.0 grams can be as much as .5 gram. use a scale taht measures in .1 gram increments!

Hey all!

Got back from the headshop...picked up a finger gram scale for $7 and it weighs up to 100g. It's accurate right now...he let me pick out a scale by testing it with a nickel and honestly for NOW...this will do until I get a new job. I don't plan on dosing more than 2 or 3 times once the fruits arrive...mainly preserve and put away for later...especially since I'm relocating soon. But I didn't want to not have at least a rough estimate of dosage. I will be buying a MW Palm Scale though for this and other hobbies.

Thanks again...I didn't think the postage ones would be worth it.

Love & Light,

Boppity

Thats what I use too. We call it a hangman scale. It has been with me for years. It was originaly purchased to weigh out weed and now it does my shrooms too. I would like to get a digital one though. Just have to save up some money, but it gets the job done for now.

Right on Killa. I don't mind if it's off by a little bit...I can handle a little more or a little less than the scale says...but the dude at the headshop said as long as I don't abuse it it should stay accurate for a while...depending on how much I use it...and at this rate it looks like I'll only need it for like a month.

Take care and thanks for the post!

Love & Light,

You, or anybody, who is looking for a scale should check out My Weigh . Great selection! Has a link for all of the distributors that sell the scales online. Maybe not any for $40, but some are pretty close. I would also keep looking on EBAY... I got a triple beam balance (over 2500g capacity, accurate to .1g) for $54, with shipping!!!

Yeah I actually plan on buying one of their Palm Scale models...I just can't afford one right now (unemployed). The finger scale will suffice til I can buy a better one.

Thanks for the reply!

Love & Light,

Thanks for the advice still Stained! Knowledge is always good to share regardless of when.

Again...I'm not gonna keep the finger scale forever...I just need something to hold me over til I can afford a "real" scale.

Love & Light,

Boppity
