Default Weighing Machine for bars & coins

Hi,

I am contemplating if i should get a digital weighing machine or is it just a waste of money. Any views?

If yes, anyone can recommend where to get. Hopefully not too expensive.

Thanks!

Yes you should.
It super handy to weigh your bars and conduct specific gravity tests to put your mind at ease.

As it happens, i have one for sale. I bought two digital weighing scales who show two decimal places. Many only show one decimal place.

SGD 40.00 if you're interested. Self-collect at Tiong Bahru MRT or Centennial Tower.

You can also try DX. They have lotsa scales.
Prices are in USD and items might take up to 2 months to get here, but so far no missing items.

I have been wanting to get a mini scale since last year.
But my lazy nature (of looking for one) keeps holding me back.

If you do not mind the high price, need it immediately, want to have a look and feel before buying, there is at least 3 shops at Sim Lim Tower (not Sim Lim Square) carrying such scales.

One is facing the entrance, can't miss it. Another is to the right of the same entrance. Third is located at the basement. The basement shop owner told me there is another shop at the basement also selling it.

Price tag says $75 for the 100g (0.01g). But she offered me $65. Though I believe can bargain down more.
Did I buy? No. Because I remember seeing online at half the price.

Cheers.

I bought this scale (300g/0.01g resolution) from DX back in 2010 for $14.58. I'm still using it today (with new batteries).

The price has dropped to $13.30 (less than S$17), and the price includes free shipping worldwide. DX shipping can be quite slow, sometimes takes 2-3 weeks to arrive.

Mine is 500g/0.01g.
Comes in handy if you're going to use glass of water to do specific gravity test.
