# Scale Information Question

Discussion in 'Smoking Accessories Q&A' started by iSmoker, Sep 26, 2009.

1. I am looking into buy a scale but I don't know which model to get because I don't know what any of it means.

They come in:

100x0.01g
1000x0.1g
50x0.01g
600x0.1g

Can anyone explain what all this means and which one will be the best for weighing out weed, nothing really more then maybe an ounce or two.

edit: multiply

3. Hmm, what do you mean bud?

4. The first number is the number of grams it will weigh to and the second number is the accuracy it'll tell you.

5. Then tell me why the one that weighs 100 grams is more then the one that weighs 1000 grams

6. 100x0.01g
1000x0.1g
50x0.01g
600x0.1g

The 100g and 50g scales weigh up to that amount of grams. Since they are only made for weighing such a small amount, they are able to weigh it more accurately, hence the ability to weigh up to .01 of a gram.

The 600g and 1000g scales can't weigh the weed as accurately because they are made to be able to weigh more, therefore they can only weigh up to .1 of gram.

Therefore you should either get either the 100g or 1,000g scale. But since you only need to weigh at most a couple ounces then get the 100g scale as it is more accurate.

7. Because it is so sensitive that it weighs down to .01. The thousand gram one is a better deal though if it is just for bud. Never in my life have i asked for 14.98 grams.

And you prolly don't need a thousand gram scale (if you do we need to hook up). I get scale that are like 300x.1 for 20 or 30 bucks and work great.

just get the 100x.01. It's gonna weigh a half eighth to (1.75) instead of the 1000x0.1 which would just round to (1.7 or 1.8)

9. My scale is up to 500 grams and in increments of .1, it seems like the perfect scale for me, although I might need to upgrade once my clientel base increases.

10. Don't talk about dealing here, good way to get banned.

11. Who the fuck buys weed by the 16th of a gram? (which is what its called. saying a half eighth makes you look stupid)

12. Just get a triton t2. Seriously I know like 12 people that have one including myself and they rarely fail and only cost \$35 (at my headshop at least, can't imagine they cost more online). They measure just past one decimal point so like 3.5 g's for example. With weed thats all you need though I mean what kind of greedy dealer cares about .01 g's of tree, thats like 10 cents worth.

It's also better to get caught with a scale like that b/c when you get caught with scales that weigh out to 00.xxx or whatever it looks a little less legit since those scales are usually for people weighing crystal meth or coke or other things that are hella expensive by the g.

13. I'm not. The rule is no discussion of dealing, I'm not discussing anything, I am merely making subtle inferences. Besides I've said more than that and been fine, it warms my heart that you are looking out for my well being though

14. 100 grams .01 is what i would get

Means it can measure up to 100 grams at a time which is like 3.5 oz and it will measure to the hundredth, like 10.54g.

Or get a triton t2, my friend has one, its good. i think its 300x .1 but its nice.

If you wanna fuck with research chems get a milligram scale .001

15. I wouldn't recommend this but my friend stole a scale from his science class at the end of the year, it's a really nice one and has a much bigger weighing area than mine, to give you an idea you could put a bowl on the pad and fill it with weed. I imagine it's really accurate.

16. not 16th of a gram. that's 0.0625 of a gram. its 16th of an ounce, which is about 1.75 of a gram (assuming that an ounce is 28 grams)
