Description
 
Digital Scales for precision weighing of small finds, flotation samples, Carbon sample and ecofacts.
These are professional Digital scales, which can be used with accuracy to 0.1 gram. They have a maximum capacity of a huge 1000 grams (1 kg), this is far higher than cheaper alternatives.

It features a clear blue backlit display allowing you to use the scales in low light.

It also features a robust plastic case and leather pouch. The plastic case is lipped so that you can use this for multiple or smaller objects that may roll of the steel platform by placing this on the scales first and using Tare function. In addition - you could even use a larger box (such as one of our Stewart Boxes) and fill from a flot sample - Just use the Tare sample to remove the weight of the box!

It takes just 2 x AAA batteries to power these. This saves having to find expensive replacement batteries or specific coin cell batteries, which you can never find when you need to! The platform is a large 7.3cm x 6.5cm, which should be more than adequate for most archaeological uses.

On Excavation - On a Field Project - In the Lab these scales are light, small and powerful.

pros and cons November 7, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from ROWLEY REGIS, WEST MIDLANDS United Kingdom  
The quality of the build is poor. One of the plastic lugs that help to hold the lid in place was broken off. Fortunately the plastic lid has a small magnet fitted in it which helps to keep it in place when in transit. The steel platform hasn't been fitted squarely; it is at an angle. I weighed lots of items and found out that if you leave them on the scales their weight creeps up gradually by 0.1 g at a time.  Once an item has been on the scales for 63 seconds it automatically switches off. This might be a battery saving feature. The paper manual for English speaking users is quite brief and full of spelling and grammatical errors. The instructions in the lid have the same problem. There is no excuse for the steel platform from being skewed. For the price the scales are just about fit for purpose, but the quality of the build is disappointing.

professional & reliable July 2, 2014
Reviewer: Maureen Carroll from York, North Yorkshire United Kingdom  
Everything I ordered, including the digital scales, is super and arrived by post within two days. Very reliable and professional, good quality, easy to order and pay. I have bought equipment here before, and will certainly do so again.

small tray size December 20, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
the scales are very good, but I'd say the tray wasn't 'large' as described, rather it is small: it is more than adequate for weighing small items, but weighing larger boxes or bags on it isn't as easy as suggested as to balance the finds on the tray you often obscure the display or the item falls off. So good, but rather misleading blurb and not ideal for weighing pottery or bags of finds. If I'd known this I'd have gone for a different, larger set. Can I have the same scales but larger?
