    Hey FC crew, Im looking for a personal use scale that can start at .01 with precision and accuracy. I would also like to be able to put a tray on top and have the TARE button to zero the scale. Would be nice to have a cover for the scale for when not in use. Is there a company that is considered industry standard by any chance?

    Thanks for the knowledge and input!

    I have a different American Weigh scale (.01 accuracy) and I also love it. A great scale.

    Want to get this one too now to more accurately measure my rosin press returns ... lol

    I use the AWS-100. It's pretty accurate for the price.

    I own the milligram scale listed above and love it. But its a milligram scale and doesnt work well for large amounts due to the tiny area that measures weight. If you need something starting wtih .01g I would get something else from AWS that is better for that usage

    Yes the milligram scale (.001 to 20 grams) does have a pretty small scoop to weigh flowers. I use a clear plastic party cup with the top third cut off. I set the cup on the scale in place of the little scoop and then turn it on. The scale automatically zeroes out with the cup. Then I can easily weigh a quarter ounce with it.

    The ability of the scale to calibrate to zero with a different flower holder is nice!

    I have a gemini-20 knock-off that actually legit works and I have one tip for its owners especially if you use it for weed:
    Make your own try for it. Make it light, from a thick hard paper and put some cylinder the size of the weighing platform at the center of the bottom.
    Then you can weigh up to the maximum range of the scale easily. You can't put even 2g on the tiny paltform that is has normally.
    With the hand-made tray this scale works very well for me and its very precise.

    I say that cutting the top portion of a clear plastic drink cup is easier. Just use the bottom half or more of the cup as a weighing container. Turn it on, wait for the scale to calibrate, then pour in your weed.

    That also sounds great, probbly even better as paper doesn't last forever.
