    Ohaus Scales on Amazon - Genuine or not ????

    Saw these scales on Amazon.

    Ohaus Reloading scales $NZD 91.43

    https://www.amazon.com/OHAUS-3039327...MS55TBWJQ3GEX6

    Could these be the genuine deal ???

    The warninig sign is that they are made in China......under licence perhaps ???? or am I being too optomistic ??

    Cheers
    Phil

    Asides from the fact that amazon would kick your dog for a dollar...(=are fucking evil and you shouldn't give them money ever)

    Country of origin china? But payment to NL?

    115 happy customers though...

    Pay with credit card on paypal, then if not genuine or unhappy, dispute payment with paypal. You'll at least generally get your money back.

    Reviews look pretty rough. May be they've gone the cost cutting route, and cut too much

    My first set of scales were some Ohaus 5 0 5 that I bought about 1970 and are still fine. Later identical scales were available from RCBS and Lyman under their names. Perhaps the name trademark has run out and the Chinese are cashing in on it. Mine cost $30.00 all those years ago so $90.00 odd now seems awfully cheap.

    i bought a 0.0001g (320g) ohaus in NZ from their agent (Labwarehouse in new plymouth) for work and it set me back $6500
    i doubt they do anything for $90

    I think you're better off going quarters with your mates for an A&D. Or just making do with a beam.
