Ok, so, in cupboard, we found we still had one of those somewhat cheap standard kitchen scales standing around, and it has a flat, open dial face, that you sort of turn to calibrate the scale - as in line up zero mark with pointer when there's no weight on it at that moment, and since you literally turn the dial face by hand, there's not even a cover plate over dial face, and pointer, which is a slightly flexible rubber needle pointer. Either way, we now just scraped a slightly longer mark at zero grams onto dial face at same angle as pointer hovers over it, and then made shorter marks/grooves at each 500g/half a kilogram marking, so reckon using this I would myself, using sort of tactile/feeling, be able to easily enough measure the weight of something to within like 100 grams easily enough...<smile> And, secondly, while it was something had standing around in cupboard in any case, it's also something I reckon you could get hold of easily/cheaply enough at one of the local homeware depot shops, like Mr. Price home, game, pick and pay, checkers, etc. as such, but anyway...<smile> Will specifically test/try it out tomorrow using it to measure the weight of a bit of sort of venison/rooibok roast cut I have here, so that can then use times got off roastingtimes.com as basic guideline, based on weight of meat, but anyway.
