    was accurate it would be precise enough to weigh out whatever i needed ( and inexpensive ).
    Which model did you get? I went to their site, but couldn't find a Toyo scale? I'm using a couple of cheaper Chinese scales and they are fine for some things, but when it comes to weighing phenidone I get a little worried. JW

    hi jw

    i just called their phone number ..
    toyo doesn't make scales anymore
    i asked him what was similar in price and quality &c
    and the person i spoke with suggested the "my-weigh" brand.
    i'm not sure if your inexpensive chinese scales are the same thing
    but there are detailed descriptions that might be helpful ( or not ) when you click on the info button ...

    (sorry if i am not much help! )

    good luck!

    John,
    I have one Chinese with wind cover and calibration weight that weighs down to 0.01g. It seems to work fine, but I check it all the time to make sure it's weighing right. I just don't know if it's worth going for a more expensive unit or not. The bad part about digital scales is that they might be off at the lighter weight and be on with the calibration weight. Non-linear I guess you'd say. Now, an analog scale shouldn't have that problem I don't think. JW

    Yet another vote for the Ohaus triple beam. I got mine at a police auction.
