if vinyl or coke is your thing then pick a 5 gram scale for greater accuracy as in 1.20 grams and not on a 1% basis like that one. Just sayin
of my new digital scale is plenty for me. I also cannot be picky, when this store was the only game in town that could provide a scale immediately. I also picked the scale with the smallest range in the store. A couple of the others had ranges of zero to 600 grams.
I've kept it all these years for various reasons. So what's your point big boy?
I'm just saying that the accuracy of the scale I just purchased is fine for me, especially after using my Shure scale previously. The digital scale is so easy to use as well. That Shure scale combined with the difficult adjustment of the AR-XA counterweight was a nightmare.
When I first used the Shure scale yesterday on the AR-XA, I must have made 20+ attempts to set my desired VTF. I finally learned that tightening the set screw on the AR-XA counterweight moves the counterweight forward resulting in a .04 gram weight increase.
since the weight of nickels or pennies can vary up to .2 grams in my previous post:
"The 1 gram weight will always be a reference for 1.XX grams if you can verify the exact weight and write it on the weight with a marker. Mine is a consistent 1.02 grams. That way any electronic one can be checked for accuracy"
So, use a coin and weigh it a few times and write the weight on it with a marker, it will be your reference weight. If I used a 100g scale in my Lab duties to weigh samples that only weighed 1 gram the lab supervisor would have written me up for violations. 2 times and they would have fired me. I have the same 100 gram scale as you that I use for weighing things but it's accuracy I've found to vary a bit on measuring <5, and with age has gotten worse and I don't use it much; only the one that goes no higher than 5 grams. I looked for a while but couldn't find the name as it had no I.D.
I'm a stickler for this because it only takes one play to ruin the precious vinyl from mistracking, and humans make errors.
assistant in a physiology lab in college, but I mostly played with mercury. There should be some mutated fish nearby.
I really had no choice for the weight range for what was available at the smoke shop. I was thinking like you though, and that's why I chose the scale with the lowest weight range. Too bad it is 100 grams. I did feel happy when the nickel measurement was so close.
I was trying to achieve 1.25 grams with the Shure M97xe, but I finally settled for 1.31 grams after several attempts with that AR-XA counterweight. Very frustrating, and got tired of fighting.
vinyl is like a girl who used to get in fights at an early age, has a few scars here and there, wears well worn clothing for comfort, but has private behaviors only the boyfriend/husband would know.
Everyone here knows vinyl well. There are reasons vinyl is a reference sound which, as always, is a topic of repeated disagreement with the 'digital only' users.
