    I need a scale

    What is the best reasonably priced scale for weighing components and where do you recommend getting it at?

    Oldwillknot was selling MyWeigh 6001's on Ebay for $30 shipped a few months ago. I bought that and a MyWeigh 120 (I think that was the model #) from them. The 120 is a pocket scale and weighs up to 120 grams in 0.1 gram increments. The 6001 weighs up to 6000 grams in 1 gram increments or 13.25 pounds in 0.1 ounce increments.

    They're both very accurate and I've been happy with them. I think I ended up paying a total of $42 for both delivered. And I got them in 3 days.

    Shipping/Time

    If you want them now and don't want to worry about shipping or the time it takes to ship go to Office Max or Office Depot and get a nice digital 6# scale... $30-$35

    They have other colors in their store. The checkout process is kind of a pain, but I've bought twice from them with no problems.
