must have a lot to do with different scales.


Do you check the scale 1st, to see if its accurate?

loonie = 7g,
25c (old)=5g
5c (old)=4.5 g

Im building my visa points up to get a scale for the kitchen, and for discs big grin

To check accuracy up to the weight of discs, you should use about 25 loonies

No, but I'll try these. I don't do it for accuracy, but for consistency. If my favourite Firebird weighs in at 172g, then I make sure the one I'm buying is the same, based on the weight on the same scale. Also, when I'm buying two discs at the same time, I make sure they have the same registered mass.

My kitchen scale isn't so hot with discs.

How old is "old"? All the quarters I tried were 4.5g. None of them were particularly old. All the quarters had the "P" on them that don't work in the Coke machine in the staff room.

The loonie was 7g.
