    Default Recommendations for a quality scale?

    I'm looking for a good milligram scale. +-5mg is probably sufficient. +-5mg for a single 100mg dose of (for example) vitamin B-1 powder is significant error, but measuring out a 60 day supply would be 6,000 mg, making that error insignificant. I also need to be able to zero out the scale (to handle measuring cups and the like). Having a large range would be desirable as well. Some scales top out at 10 mg, which is a tiny amount once you've subtracted the weight of the container.

    Thinking on this, would I need two scales? Multiple gram per day items like vitamin C, amino acids, etc couldn't be economically weighed on the scale above, you'd have far too many batches to process.

    I have an Escali but I think it's too coarse for your needs. It will weigh grams but not mg. The function yu want is called "tare," where you can automatically deduct the weight of the container, i.e. you are measuring "net weight."

    Did you even try Googling? Amazon may have what you want, $23. http://www.amazon.com/American-Weigh.../dp/B0012TDNAM

    Durability, accuracy, and ease of use cannot be ascertained via Google.
