    the american weigh scales on amazon were some of the cheapest I have seen. I have a .1 gram scale that only cost me 8 bucks. A .01 gram scale will cost like 5 bucks more

    amazon ftw

    although my friend from china laughs at my face how my 10 dollar scale is "ridiculous overpriced"
    apparently his family wholesales a few popular brands from china and they are sold at alittle over a quarter a piece.

    I want to purchase a good quality scale for weighing small amounts of herb. I want an accurate scale that is easy to use and calibrate and can weigh to the nearest hundredth (.01). A lot of scales only weigh to the nearest tenth which wouldn't work if you wanted to way out say.... .15 of herb. Any information on good scales and where to buy would me much appreciated.

    I paid $25 for a .1g scale in a San Diego headshop, but you can thank Max for this link to a $30 .01g scale Jennings JS-50XV

    Even comes with a 50g calibration weight & vibration killing mat :o

    Only thing I dont know is shipping, hope they don't gouge you there..

    The other nice thing about the scale I got was that it came with a pad to set it on (so it doesn't jiggle) and a calibration weight. I think I paid under $15 for it at the time and it was shipped and arrived within a week.

    Thanks everyone! I bought a Jennings scale from www.oldwillknotscales.com.it comes with a 50 g calibration weight and weighs to the nearest .01. Should work fine for my needs. Great website super easy to order......

    I've had my Jennings scale almost 7 years now, and it's still going strong. :)

    No love for American Weight? Just a couple quarters over $10 shipped! I own one of their .1 scales and it's been very reliable in my experience. That scale I linked is the same one that my collective of choice uses, and it hasn't been off yet ;)

    I got my 0.01g scale from a local tobacconist for $60.
    A bit pricey, but its still running strong after a few years.

    I also got a 0.001g scale from amazon for like $25, but its pretty fiddly, so I don't use it too often.
