Made a knife edge balancer but I used aluminum tubing instead of a straight edge





I used the arbor from the brake lathe with o-rings to hold the centering cones in the drums. Works really nice

Doug, that's a terrifically simple design.......and I'm going to steal it when I get to balancing my flywheel and drum assemblies!

That was the idea behind it George. I posted pics of it so others can steal the design. The angle iron cost $17 from Home Depot and the tubing was a left over piece of hand rail from an ambulance I worked on. And just some nuts and bolts to level it. Doug
