Re: Cheap easy homemade Mcpx blade balancer

I would also suggest finding the center of gravity for each blade. Probably not that important for such small blades, but the tape doesn't belong at the tip of the blade. More in the center for proper balancing.

Yeah, that works exactly like the Align 250 blade balancer, which incidentally, works on the mcpx blades as well. Pretty handy.
