Thin Load Cells

    Hi,
    I'm doing a project and an looking at building a small weigh scale and measure about 40lbs max (even lesser is ok as I'm learning). I'm looking for load cell thickness of 5mm or less (:smile:). I've one kitchen scale that I opened but that load cell is bigger.
    I looked at the web and found LCL load cell by Omega (http://www.omega.com/pptst/LCL.html) and few by Chinese manufacturers (like this one here: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/30kg-150kg-300kg-planar-bean-load-cell-for-low-platform-scale-low-thin-scale-weight-sensor/32474908124.html [Broken]). I'm wondering if there are known thin load cells and am I missing any of them? Please let me know, really appreciate all suggestions and help!
    I would be happy to post my circuit once I start building :smile:

    Cheers,
    Ava
