Good day lads.Well i made a bone head move and orderd the wrong aluminun spinner.i needed a 120 slot and recived the small slot,and yup another bone head move ground out the slot.Well it looks good but i am worreid about out of balance enough to shake my new Areoworks Edge ans new Saito 82.Yup i am new to 4 strokes and ran her up on the deck,rich and shook a fair amount.Any way i have a new plastic spinner,i have to shape, will i be better off to shape that and try it on the maiden.If i was to balance the alumiun one and prop at the same time what would you use to hold it together?

Actually, you are best to balance the spinner and the prop seperatly since you will have to replace the prop at some point in your life most
probably. If you know someone who has a "HighPoint" balancer, the shaft has tapered cones on each end that fit up against the spinner while on the shaft. Just use a sharpie pen to make a mark on the spinner.
