No worries. Just the method I have always seen mentioned and what I'll do one of these days...
A friendly butcher should have suitably accurate scales too.
I bit the bullet and purchased a known weight from a supplier in Tullamarine. It wasn't necessarily cheap, but it did come with a certificate to verify it's weight, which more than satisfies my requirements.
