Mettler JL5001-G/A03 has been discontinued by Mettler and no longer in production. Mettler now only offers the JL602-G/L01 (610g x 0.01g) and JL6001-G/L01 (6100g x 0.1g) for portable jewelry scales.

The information below is for people researching and existing JL5001-G/A03 for reference only since we are sold out and Mettler is not making this model anymore.

The JL5001-GA03 is not only popular with the jewelry trade, but we find many almond and walnut growers especially in California and peanut growers in Georgia like the JL5001-GA03 since it is a legal for trade Class II scale 5100g x 0.1g.

Whether a pawn shop, scrap gold buyer, jeweler appraiser or jewelry manufacturer, those who work with some of the most precious metals in the world cannot afford to have the wrong weighing results.  You can have complete confidence in METTLER TOLEDO portable gold scales.

Mettler Toledo's JL5001-G/A-03 jewelry scale features 5100 grams maximum weighing capacity and increments in 0.1 gram divisions.  This digital scale is legal for trade and offers a compact, plastic construction with a small footprint.  Powered by either an AC adapter or 4 AA batteries, Mettler Toledo JL5001 portable scale offers portability perfect for anyone weighing at fairs, flea markets and trade shows where AC power is not always accessible.  The Mettler-Toledo JL5001-G/A-03 digital scale offers external calibration which requires the purchase of an optional 5000 gram calibration mass.  You may also connect the JL5001 balance to a computer, optional printer or auxiliary display via the RS232 interface.  RS232 cables and software are sold separately.

Standard equipment includes:

  • Automatic adjustment with external weights
  • Back-lit display
  • RS232C interface
  • Protective cover
  • Various weighing units can be displayed
  • Below-the-balance weighing device
  • Battery and AC operation

The Mettler Toledo's JL5001-G/A-03 electronic scale is an unbelievable value especially compared to competitive legal for trade scales offering greater than 5 kilograms weighing capacity.

Whether a goldsmith, jeweler or jewelry manufacturer, those who work with some of the most precious materials in the world can’t afford to give anything away.  You can have complete confidence in METTLER TOLEDO gold balances.

The JL-G gem balance is the weighing jewel in every gold shop.  With its compact size, it is the ideal gem balance for retail applications.

Ideal for commercial applications which require space-saving, and easy & reliable operation.  JL gem balances are equipped with all the functions and features required for carrying out simple weighing tasks.  The results can be read clearly and reliably thanks to the bright backlighting on the display.


Although the Mettler Toledo JL jewelry scale is legal for trade, if you plan on doing something like selling jewelry directly to customers in your store, then you are required by weights and measures to have a secondary display that the customer can see in real time. Another example might be if you've ever bought meat from a grocery store, you know that when the butcher weighs out the meat, you and the butcher both have separate displays as the meat is weighed. This scale is legal for trade, but it is NOT "legal for direct sales" unless you buy the Remote display with backlight.
