AcousTech Stylus Force Gauge

Works fine all you have to do is think past zero line your stylus up on the center dot a winner
Gives weight to 1/100 g, so this implies accuracy to 1 sig digit, but I found my model to vary by more than this on repeat measurements with otherwise stable conditions and good care for the item. Pretty unacceptable in a product this expensive. I'd say go with the analog scales - they won't tell you if you're at 1.83 grams but they will tell you you're at 1.8 g reliably and this product doesn't always do even that!
Simple to use and effective. Used it to dial in a Dynavector 10X5 I purchased also. Thanks, Patrick!
This gauge helped me dial in my setup. I think the $ I save on new styluses by extending the life of mine with proper setup will more than pay for this tool.
excellent for the money,,not like some other guages whose prices loom close to the "RIP OFF"category
