The Docooler Digital Scale Balance Set is the right choice for the person interested in minute amounts of weight. It includes a one, two, five, ten, and twenty gram weight, whereas most such sets start at ten grams and then jump to twenty and beyond.
The Learning Resources Brass Mass Set includes ten weights that are handsome and easy to hold, though they are not as accurate as many of the stainless steel sets available. This low-cost set is more than adequate for classroom use when concepts matter more than precision.
With the six weights in this low-cost, well-made Obecom Precision Steel Calibration Kit you can create any increment of five grams all the way up to 200 grams. They are ideal for recalibrating small scales, such as those used to measure powders or precious stones.
This Neewer 1000 Gram Weight Set costs a few dollars more than many kits that have the same weights included. But its excellent permissible error range of plus or minus 0.03 of a gram makes that added cost well worth the slight expense.
