Default $10 USB Scale

Not sure if this would be of interest to people working with weights of grains, but I figured I'd post anyway...

check your local stores for stock...

I've been looking for a better scale. This one seems like a great idea. Do you know how accurate it is?

yeah, it'd be nice to know what the resolution and lower level of detection are...

I'd definitely recommend a digital scale that measures grams, oz, lbs, and kilos.

I got mine from eBay and satisfied with it.

Just got a set home .... Works great but one store was out and I got the last one at another so they must be going fast and it's a clearance item so they will not be getting any more.
