Good scale?

I've been trying to be good and measure with grams and percentages making sausage.
I've been using a Taylor scale but it chokes on partial grams. I've been just rounding up.
Any recommendations?

American Weigh Systems or whatever the $10-20 ones are. They sell them at headshops. They should go to hundredths of a gram, and be pretty accurate by the tenth. They will also probably have something like a Gemini-20 which goes to the thousandth of a gram, but they are overkill and annoying to use (Google them and you will see what i mean).

If your scale doesn't come with calibration weights, you can just weigh something standardized like coins.

Problem solved. It weighs in Grams as well as Grains. Should have thought of it sooner.

I went way above my budget & bought a Toledo jewelry scale.
