You can get the very same scale shown by Fremer

for $50-$60, if you shop. That version has a metal casing, which I like too vs plastic, but the plastic version may work just as well and be just as reliable, for significantly less money. The type of scale shown by Fremer may be a more recent product than the one owned by John and shown in his photo. I don't know for sure. In any case, it's non-magnetic and has its platform more nearly in the same plane as the surface of an LP, when you set it on a platter mat. The cost differential between John's scale and the scale promoted by Fremer at whatever price is a matter for a buyer to consider.

I did not originally intend to argue that one digital scale is better than another, but I do like the digital scales that are on the market much better than the old school Shure SFG. I've got two SFGs lying around, if anyone wants one for the cost of shipment.
