WTB: Reloading scale - mechanical/beam style

Hello everyone! I just joined here a little while back, since my other forum wasn't into the long-range part of rifles as much as I wanted

I shoot nothing but handloads, and I handload for family/friends as well. Every time hunting season rolls around, I get swamped with requests for deer hunting ammo, and this is usually how I get the extra cash I need for Christmas (I am a full-time engineering student, and have very low income). Well, last week, as I was starting my first batch for someone... my scale wouldn't hold zero. It's a digital scale, a RCBS Rangemaster 750. I tried calibrating it (like 100 times), and it will hold zero for a few minutes, but then it will begin to climb. Or, if I pick up the pan, when I replace it, it never returns to zero, it is sometimes as much as .5 grain off! If I sit back and let my zero climb on its own, it'll go as high as 1.7gr. I can't trust this one, so I desperately need a replacement.

I don't care what brand it is, as long as it is reliable and affordable. I would prefer it to be a beam scale, but at this point, I'm desperate enough to take anything.

I have things I can trade also.. I have dies (.223 FL sizer/seater, .30-06 FL sizer/micrometer seater), brass (.223 Rem x 500, 5.56 x 1500, .30-06 x 150, .308 Win x 50, .270 Win x 20, .300 Win Mag x 20, 8mm Mauser x 20, 9mm x 120, .40 S&W x 400, .357 Mag x 150, .38 Spl x 120, .38+P x 50, .45 Auto x 100), a $140 Starret brand vernier-micrometer I would trade, and a brand-spanking new Troy Battlesling (single-point, OD green). I have other stuff, I'll add as I think of it.
