Dillon sells "Go/No Go" gauges that I like.

I would recommend the purchase of a better powder measure--like the RCBS or Hornady.  These can thread right into the toolhead, and provide much better versatility than the Lee measure.

I suggest an electronic scale as a luxury item to complement your balance scale.  I don't recommend the cheap $35 ones (ask me how I know).  The $100 or so I spent on an RCBS digital 750 grain scale was a very well-spent $100.  You don't have to have it but it is a really nice thing to have.
