    Default Where do I get accurate $#@$ scales?

    Every time I step on my Target ones I get a different weight. If I weigh my calibrated plates I get different readings to the marked values.

    Has anyone cared enough to get some good ones and can tell me where to go?

    We have electronic Big W ones and they work perfectly within .1 of a kilo, I can step off and on 5 times and it will give the exact same reading every time. They do not have a brand on them but are glass top.

    Make sure you are on a level good floor when using your scales.

    I got some from Harris Scarf and they seem to be consist ant, not sure if they are 100% accurate but as long as they are consistent and you weigh yourself at the same time of day, they will give you and idea.

    I got a great set off eBay.
    Never had an issue, even if it's .5 or even a kilo off the scales at the gym.
    If I see it moving up each week I know I'm gaining weight.
