Default Powder Scales?

I am working on getting into reloading (ordered my Modern Reloading 2nd edition today) but I have a question about powder scales..

Do you guys trust the Lee Saftey Scale? It seems I've heard mixed opinions on it.

Would you guys trust one of the digital jewelry scales that you can get from eBay that also does grains?

If I get the classic turret kit from Kempf, and add a scale.. I should be up and running right?

I've never heard anyone question the accuracy of the Lee scale. It can be really sensitive, and a bit touchy to use, and its limited capacity means you can't weigh most bullets; but it works just fine for its intended use.

No, I would not trust the cheap eBay scales
