    I use aOhaus triple beam balance, works well, durable, always accurate. Cost 99.00 dollers at the time new.

    I work for a scale manufacturer and I get to use my demo stock for free - Sometimes I use an automated batching system that is good to .05g with a capacity of 1kg. (I wrote the program for it) It sure makes it easy to whip out a dozen complete formulas and seal them in plastic bags. It is all industrial grade. The simple scale base and indicator (separate assemblies) would retail for about $1000. They are made here in the U.S. and are stainless steel and very high accuracy - not be confused with asian plastic. So I am spoiled - serious overkill but fun.

    Mettler is the best bar none.
    But Ohaus or A&D will be fine for our purposes. I recommend you take Mike up on his offer or the web scale store- you don't want to buy anything marketed as for photagraphers- instant markup!

    Mettler is priced like the best - they are not the best except where they have a specific market niche that they dominate. Generally speaking they are less capable and more money for the average application. Just my $.02
