    Anyone know what weights are for household items that might be a fraction of a gram or a gram, so my pet Cuckoo can calibrate it's new scale... He checked google but couldn't find anything, just wondered if any other fellow tokers happened to know of something used as a quick trick to weigh a scale, Thanks.

    The scale did not come with a calibration weight? If not, they are not very expensive.

    I got the scale used, and it looks cheap anyways... I weighed a canadian bill which is supposed to weigh exactly a gram as I hear, and it came up as .9 on my scale... so it seems it works to some extent, still a crappy scale, can't wait until I can get on of those nice truweigh ones or whatever they're called

    If you can find a US nickel (5 cents) it weigh's 5 grams. Thats how alot of people in the us set there scales.

    That won't work ^^^. Some nickels are made out of nickel. Some are mostly zinc. None weigh exactly 5gm. Get a calibration set of masses(weights). It won't break the bank.

    Money gets passed around, gets abrased, absords sweat dirt whatever,
    so unless you got a piece of currency fresh from the press, the weight
    CANNOT be consistently the same.
    Get calibration weights. Or make some by weighing small pieces of whatever
    on a another scale that you know is calibrated correctly.
    You can then use those values to compare when you weigh same things
    on your own scale.
