Hello all.

I am looking for measuring spoons for measuring micro amounts of dry powders (ferts.).

I am specifically looking for a measurement set that includes:

1/8 tsp
1/16 tsp
1/32 tsp
1/64 tsp

I will be using these measurement to dry dose my fertilizers when they arrive.

Does anyone know where i can buy a set? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Stuart

Thank You, OCD, I think I'll invest in some measuring spoons though Canadian Tire ;)!

I ordered my set off eBay for less than $10, i think it wuz like $7
I'm an "instant gratification" type of guy, looks like a visit to Crappy Tire for me.... LOL

Mine was $7 at Canadian Tire (stainless steel)
Canadian Tire, here I come.

Mine are from Canadian Tire too and I think they are very good quality for the money.
OK, really, I'm going to Canadian Tire, honest......

Thank You for all the input :)!

Best Regards,

Stuart

I went to Canadian Tire and they DEFINITELY DO NOT CARRY these measuring spoons in increments less than 1/4 tsp anymore (I even had the guy check their system wide computer) :mad: !

BUT...... I did find a company in the US that ships to Canada and has the spoons measured out to 1/64 tsp :eek: (a drop - yes that is the proper chef's term). They are called mini measuring spoons and are available through Prepared Pantry. I ordered 2 sets for myself and they should be here in a week or so :D !

Happy Measuring to all those looking for a precision set for dosing fertz in a small fishtank :) !

Best Regards,

Stuart

Hey Stuart,

How much was shipping? I couldn't find that anywhere on their site.
Why isn't anyone trying eBay?
I picked mine up for $7 including shipping right to my door steps! And they're exactly the same ones you have! Just curious~
