I do have a pretty good scale but it&#39;s not that accurate at the low end of things. Instead of creating a scale collection I just got a set of kitchen spoons. It may look funny but a tablespoon of Sodium Sulfite is always the same amount of chemical. </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
I agree Robert, consitency is the important thing here and your spoon is giving you just that. I was lucky many years ago when a friend who runs a laboratory for a large multi national gave me two chemical balances that were bound for the waste skip. Before I had those I used an old Post Office brass scale with little weights. I still have it in my darkroom and I consider it an old friend.
