Can one use Classroom Precision Balance to measure the weight of individual sheets aluminum foil?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The provided gram weights might not be small enough to measure an individual sheet of foil. If you are measuring mgs, you'll probably need an electronic scale instead.

It does the job
It's a basic good quality balance scale. It looks nothing like the picture- ours came with a red base, and buckets. However, it has become a great new tool in our homeschool (and play). I would recommend buying an additional set of gram weights to go with it. It comes with a set, but if you want to measure more "stuff", you are going to need more weights.

Working well
So far this balance scale is working well for us. I didn't give it five stars because it is a little tough to get it to tare correctly. The kids usually struggle with that. The sliding weight for the tareing doesn't slide super smoothly. But it does work and it will tare out after some fiddling.

The gram weights are small but they provided a set of tweezers to help with the handling.

There is a small button on top to help it stop teetering back and forth so that it takes less time to reach an accurate read and that is a God-send! So helpful. Not sure if all balances have that button but it's brilliant!

The box it was shipped in is perfect for storage without having to disassemble anything really. This is a great alternative to a triple beam balance for the price. You won't get the super accurate readings like you would for a TBB or electronic scale but it will do the job of teaching kids weight and mass measuring.
