Thread: Postal or Kitchen Scale

  1. Default Postal or Kitchen Scale

    I'm looking for a postal or kitchen scale that accurately weighs (to within, say, a half oz.) items as light as our HO scale rolling stock and costs less than $40 or so. Is a digital or mechanical scale any more accurate than the other?


    What's been your experience? Recommendations, reliable brands and sources for purchase other than Amazon appreciated.


    Thanks!

    I bought this one about 3 years ago ... works great.

    I have 3 of these - 1 in the kitchen, 1 in the woodshop, and 1 in the railroad room.

    But really, any modern scale with a large enough a platform to fit the cars you want to weigh.

    Jennings scales are very nice. For small stuff -- less than 7 ounces -- I use this one:
