Accurate scale that holds Portafilter

Want to talk espresso but not sure which forum? If so, this is the right one.

Hi all. I have what I thought was a good scale but it turns out the Portafilter doesn't fit properly on it , sometimes falls off and also the scale is not accurate.

So what would be a good scale that will provide consistent readings and will fit a Portafilter ? Budget is not an issue and I don't need a built in timer. Thanks

I 3d-printed a small stand which fits the scale. But a little bit of plywood and super glue will also work... :wink:

I got this one and compared it to my new Acaia and let me say for the price it's not a bad place to start. American Weigh Scales AMW-SC-2KG... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001RF3XJ2

The portafilter doesn't fit well but you can manage with the included covers which flipped upside down work as little trays

The stand below is also a good idea, not sure I'd start woodworking lol
