Are there any good alternatives to the Park Tool DS-1 digital hanging scale? I feel sure there are competitors that work as well for under $65. Any experience with other makes/models? Thanks!

Alternately, navigate to Amazon.com and use the search phrase 'digital hanging scale'.

Some random cheap fish scale from eBay. Seems to be pretty accurate when comparing to spreadsheets and hanging components of decent weight. 5g(?) resolution. Even if you don't beleive it down to the nearest 5g, those alternatives have 20g resolution, and I'm pretty sure it's accurate within 20g from 0-10kg at least.

Get one from Amazon, may not be accurate down to single-digit grams, but more than sufficient for the purpose

I use a hanging luggage scale I got on eBay. I think it was less than 10 bucks. It’s within 5 or so grams of a friend’s Park Tool scale.

The park tool one doesn't even measure down to 5g increments like the eBay ones. It measures down to 20g. You usually need some string to measure things using a fish/luggage scale though, the pure luggage ones are usually made to be held by hand only. The hook is probably the only thing special about the park tool scale.

Yeah mine has a strap you hold it by. I usually hang it by a bungee from my garage door track. Not the most high tech method, but it works for me.
