Roscoe writes: “These are simply the best scales I’ve found for two reasons:
1) They’re sturdy enough to last a lifetime, and 2) they don’t look like everybody else’s scale, so if you’ve got one at work, you’ll always know it’s yours.
“Alumicolor also sells 6″ pocket scales that are very handy for the truck or a shirt pocket. They all make great Christmas presents and are very affordable gifts. I gave my brother a set of engineering and architectural in regular and pocket sizes last year- of course his are different colors than mine!”
Pricing starts around $4 (and goes up from there based on the model).
