Default Cheap Scale and mini microscope from Nanaimo FragSwap

I got my little hand held microscope (60x with LED) for about $3 and the scales (I have a 200g with 0.01g accuracy and a 1000g with 0.1g accuracy) for about $8 each on eBay from an eBay store electron-product. These are the ones I had out at the frag swap that people were asking about.

The item number for the eye microscope is: 400281865258 and the description is 60X LED Light Microscope... (these are great for looking at frags to check for bugs and are about the size of an eraser.

One of the scale item #s is 150782195418. You can find the eBay store with these item #s and then just do a search in the store for "scale" to find a bunch of the other ones.

Shipping was free but took about a month. I have had mine for a couple of months and been happy with them, except that the area to weigh things on is really small and if you put a larger tray across it then it does not weigh properly.

I am not affiliated with the seller and don't endorse these, just posting up a handy and cheap resource for these in case people are interested.
