I am looking to buy both a table top scale to weight individual parts and also a bike hanging scale like the Alpine Digital Bike Scale. May I ask for recommendations
of which are the most accurate and the ones most recommended by everyone.
How accurate do they have to be ? - I'd like to buy something like the mechanics use in the pro tour.
As far as accuracy goes, they say it was developed by a world renowned scale developing specialist using various proprietary weight measuring technologies that were developed in the aerospace industry. So that makes it pretty much on par with everything else.
Wasn't expecting much, but hey, how far wrong can you go for $5.50?
Anyways it arrived reasonably promptly and has been faultless. Easy to use, seems accurate (matches with known weights, provides repeatable results).
For anything that can fit on it, I have always used the digital postage scale at work. I can set it to metric or US weights and in comparing to listings here and elsewhere for identical items, it's accurate.

Question is ... which is the correct one ? You should use a calibration weight to verify.
Sometimes, the 2 Park scales can be wrong rather than other which was obtuse. I use the Ebay ones, and have verified it with a 1 kg standard weight borrowed from a friend. It was dead on !
