I have sat an empty bowl on the scale and "tared" it to 0.0 and walked away, when I came back it said the bowl weighed several pounds. that bowl is very light and only weighs oz no where near what the scale said it weighed. it is "glitchy".
I think if my memory is correct this scale is supposed to weigh up to 60#.
My first look online at a lot of the digital scale out there only weigh to a max of 11 pounds..
Need a scale that weighs a whole lot more than that, and something that is reasonably priced..
Anyone have any ideas??
thanks..

Your current scale is completely unsuitable for use as anything other than a doorstop. Junk it and get something reliable.

Not sure if Old Will Knot Scales ship to Canada or not, but they are located in the Denver-Metro area of Colorado (actually only about 20 miles west of me so will have to check out their B&M)
I will be right next door to them on Saturday, and I can pop in if they are open and ask.

I just did a live chat with them, and unfortunately they do not ship to Canada, and they are strictly an online business so I wouldn't have been able to just pop in. LOL

I have bought a scale from Jennings, I believe based in Vancouver. I like mine very well.
They have all types. http://www.jscale.com/
