    Well

    I'm a bit of a gram weenie so I actually own a scale that weighs in 1/10's of grams. It's kinda cool to be able to weigh pretty much anything you want. Like a speck of dust for example. lol

    Although not necessary for what you're doing, you can buy them for about $30 if you really wanted.

    i usually don't give up easyly, but a tenth of a gram - slaps forhead and asks.."what was i thinking"? thanks to all. think i'll just fill to the nearest gram(challenging enough for a klutz like me)

    Well thanks for answering a question I had. For my top quilt, the calculator said baffle 1,2,3 are .42oz, .43oz and .44oz, but rounds to 12G each. Glad to know I can just throw 12 grams in each and call it a day.

    Not that I think you need it... But a reloading scale will measure is tenths of grains... But your going to be limited by the volume you can weigh due to the design of the scale...

    What he said... get a reasonably priced scale for measuring grains, such as those used in reloading boolits... 16.4 grains = 1 gram.

    But you've already solved the real problem!

    The problem with modding a scale to improve it's accuracy...is verifying the accuracy of the new scale:

    You'll need a form of measurement that already accomplishes what you want to do...so why mod at that point?


    Just buy a better scale...you'd have to do it eventually anyway.

    Knowing that it was never intended to be, I still gotta say, this is pretty funny.
