the weight of a paperclip or a dollar bill (any bills) is equal to a gram. i would try to use a stick, like a ruler, and balance it on top of something and put the dollar on one side and weigh out your shit on ther other

cant get down to .4 tho. i have no idea what would weigh .4 except .4 of weed

Do you know how many grams you have? Use the ol' eyeball devide method.
Or I think its a dime that wieghs 1 gram, not sure? But I think it does, put a dime in a baggie and weed in a baggie in the other hand. LOL! It will be tough, But who cares, its not coke.......Or is it? Goodluck!

Thats a good Idea! Rip the dollar bill in half, a little less than half on one end, and thats your .4 grams

I'm always a little surprised to see that another person has posted a thread thinking there must be a way to build a scale out of rulers and paper clips but they just haven't figured it out yet.

For the OP, and anyone else considering a thread about how to weigh fractions of an ounce at home -- There is NO way to accurately measure out grams and portions of grams without a digital scale. It should be very obvious to ANYONE in such a situation, that without a scale the ONLY option is to eyeball it and risk skimping yourself. common guys, use them brains.

Eye it out, just make it a pinch bigger than what you think 1.4 would look like, if you can't be exact it's easier just to go a bit over, cause people ussually bitch about skimpy bags when it's not scaled.

I don't know why you're seperating it, but I'm assuming your selling part of it to a buddy. If you do sell it to somebody I'm sure they won't have a scale and measure it out to make sure they didn't get ripped off. Just make sure it's as accurately divided as you can get it.

where can you buy scales, i've been looking for a nice cheap one (as cheap as I can find but seeing as i cant find any...) I've looked at Wal Mart, Target, and all kinds of places like that. The only smoke shop close doesn't have any. WHERE CAN I FIND A SCALE!! (besides online i really dont want one bad enough to order it, its just something nice to have.)

you could try a kitchen supply shop, they definitely sell scales, but they're probably going to be expensive and probably going to be fairly large, but it would be accurate, and unlike the ones i've seen at head shops, these actually come with warranty information and stuff like that. also you could try a post office or ups store or something, they might sell postage scales and a jewelry store or pawn shop might sell a scale too. i was in the same boat as you, i didn't want to buy one online and couldn't find one at a head shop near me, but i went up to visit some friends in columbus, oh and there were tons of shops up there and i got a large bong and scale for under \$100, both of which i continue to use today
