Not sure if this is the correct place to post a "deal", so mods, if necessary move or delete.

1000 gram digital scale from HFT. Weigh those hops!

Maybe it's free! That would be a good deal.

I enlarged the pic and it shows a .1g increment. In theory you could do as little as 0.1g I'd think. However, I don't have the scale, nor can I vouch for it. After seeing lamarguy's and Mirage's posts, Harbor Freight must have poor quality. I should have guessed as much from the pricing!
