handy tools

Here are a couple of tools that make life so much easier, firstly there is the digital scales purchased off of ebay from china for under A$10.00

This set will weigh 0.1 of a gram up to 1 kg, really handy if you are wanting to work with small doughs and you need to be accurate. there are many available that weigh to different ranges.

On the scales there is my home made blade for slashing it is a blade from a small slicing machine often found in small bakeries they are replaced as they get worn down or if the get broken, and  can usually be secured quite easily, i just glued two small pieces of ply  to the end and voila a handy piece of kit

I tried to answer this before and ran into a problem with some sort of bug on my computer, have killed it I hope. Took me hours to find out how and get rid of it.
I hate people who send those things out, just to be malicious.
I love my scales, and need to find the new small one I bought awhile back, its seems to have gone on walkabout, I bought it, and then bought the good one with the baker's percentage and lost the little one.
They sure work good for doing things like weighing coffee for the pot, the coffee is much better since I started doing that!

The small digital scales are great for when you are making a small dough and then need to replicate it with accurate measurements.

I used mine again last night for measuring the 10g of malt that had to go into each bottle of home brew last night
