    I use an Ohaus Centigram scale I purchased at a flea market, had to get a new pan and recalibrate it for zero. But its a great scale, weighs to 0.01g and a total of 311g. You don't need good precision often, unless you're weighting phenidone.

    Maybe something to do with (my young) age, but I'd kill myself if I were to measure anything on a beam balance repeatedly.

    Digital scales give the reading in 5 seconds or less and you don't see the rocking of the beam back and forth.

    I find it useful to have two scales. One for loading shotgun shells used every day to mix paper developer. One very nice expensive scale from a scientific supply store for measuring film developer and platinum chemistry. Using the scales everyday for paper developer it gets pretty groady and it is nice to dedicate that for one use.

I think it was about $85 with shipping.
    Off topic, but one of the proud moments in my life was when I was 13 years old and I hit the 10 ring enough times at that year's Hearst Trophy match in St. Louis to tie for second place with 188 out of 200. The tie was with a woman. Women are very good target shooters. A woman took first that year.

    Chemical and biological laboratory supply houses generally stock a good variety of scales. My favorite is still my old Ohaus Dialogram, which has served me for over 30 years. I have used several different kinds of flat pan scales, like the Acculab. They provide some nice features, like automatic tare, but I have found them to be less convenient and far less reliable than the traditional mechanical balance.

    AS others have said, any of the cartridge reloading supply companies sell very good beam or electronic scales at very reasonable prices. I can attest to the quality of the RCBS line of products as I own and use their Chargemaster 1500 scale and dispenser system. Very slick. It can measure in grains, or grams. I load up all my ammunition on this set up. Including rounds I use for long range target shooting (600 yrds)... Another money pit hobby of mine.

    I use Escali digital kitchen scales bought from amazon.com. They are as accurate as I need to be for the few chemicals I mix. About $25, if memory serves.
