Electronic/Digital Scale

Postby TLDonnelly » Mon Jul 25, 2011 5:12 pm

Hello Everyone

I am looking into getting a scale and was wondering if anyone has purchased one? Just so I can measure out the yarn weight before starting projects.

I can't seem to find one that does decimal points. They all do grams but I was hoping for one the does 0.1 or 0.01

Thanks for your help!

Don't get this Anthony Worrall Thompson one; you can't turn it off unless you actually take the batteries out (fiddly and you can never find the batteries when you need them!) so it's always on stand-by and EATS batteries!!

I got one off ebay it is very small I use it for calculating the yardage of unknown yarns it was about £4. we joke it is a dealers scale as it is what drug dealers use
