Where to find measuring spoons

Where can I find measuring spoons to measure Greg Watson's dry ferts.I cannot find anyhting around me that will measure a 1/16th of a teaspoon as I am being suggested to do in the dosing regime sticky thread.I don't see them on Greg's site for sale just a picture on the main page of his store under plant accessories.

I got mine from Greg, so I know he used to sell them. Maybe he has run out of them?

Better yet. Go on eBay and find a nice digital scale. You can get one for about $15-$20 and it's much more precise.

The Walmart around me doesn't have them that small.

I picked up a set at Bed, Bath and Beyond a year or so back. Do make sure to 'test' the size of whatever ones you end up with. Some are relative to tablespoons and some relative to teaspoons. My set from BBY is relative to teaspoons, and it useful for Traces and PO4.

Wow, that's some tiny measuring.

For me, I ended up buying a cheap measuring spoon set on Amazon for five bucks. The lowest it had though was 1/8tsp.

It is the little tiny spoons, down to 1/32 tsp that make dosing KH2PO4 dry so easy. I haven't seen anything that small at any store. The website provided above has them and if I needed another set I would buy it there.

Just came back from Linens and Things. They have a 4 piece ring set in a little package of smidgen, pinch, dash and nad. $4 in the kitchen department.

The nad is 1/32 tsp.
The others are 1/4, 1/8, 1/16.

Hope that Helps!
