Default jewellers scales?

Where do people get the jewellery scales from used to weigh reps?
Ive looked at a few on ebay all around £10
Anyone know where to get any cheaper than this or is this the average price?

Thanks.

I wouldnt buy jewellery scales they tend to be tiny, much too small for weighing most reps, get some digital kitchen scales.

I just use digital scales that cost £7.50 from tesco.

They do as little as half a gram and I can't see any reptile weighing much less than that - and go up to 5kg, and are pretty accurate.

Same here - pretty cheap and reliable. Ebay is a good place to look though, so just keep looking

I bought my digital weighing scale from argos. Cost me £10. I feel these kinda digital ones are pretty accurate and would serve the purpose.

most kitchen digital scales will be ideal as they measure in 1 or 2g increments and usuall come with a handy bowl you can put your snake in.

the "jewlers" types or dealers scales as they are usually known are really expensive and have a very small weighing area. Better for weighing gems than wriggly snakes.
