    Cheap Digital Scales - Any Good?

    Hi
    Just about to restart to reload and i have been looking at my very cheap (5 from China via Ebay) digital scales that I use for measuring sausage seasoning
    Has anyone any experience of these and are they trustworthy or not
    PS None of my sausages have blown up - so far!

    Glad about your sausages but would recommend RCBS Range Master 750 digital scales. Lee beam scales are to slow. Are you North Shropshire if so i'm not far from Whitchurch if you need any help.

    I used a set from cabelas and found them good. I also used the Lee beam sclaes and found them very easy to operate and the instructions were clear and consise. This time round ill not be bothering with digitals and sticking with the Lee scales.

    I use the Lee beam scales, then place the empty cartridge on digital scales, zero scales and then load powder, use it as a double check. Scales weigh in grains and cost around 5 from e bay.

    I use a 5 digital scale from chinaland..given that my groups touch/clover leaf, I'd say they're accurate enough

    I have a set, as long as your quick with them then they work very well. i use to throw all the loads onto lee scales and file the cases. once i had a batch i would then pour each load onto the scale pan and adjust by the grain, that how good i found them.
    only down side was that they where a pain in the butt to set up and then if you took to long weighting a load then they stopped weighing. i did get use to them but it was a bit of a ball ache at times.
