I just purchased the 9000, its been a long time coming. I also have the blade balancer I purchased about three years ago, does it matter what side you put the blade on the balancer? Sometimes I flip the blade after I think its balanced and it will rotate down again, is this normal? or is the blade just not fully balanced? I am hoping the 9000 takes care of my sharpening problems.

Hello,

As a first check, if you have a blade/blades rotating oddly get out your CALIPERS and measure to see if the MOUNTING HOLE of the blade is in the center of the blade.

We're seeing this more and more, lawn mower blades where the mounting hole is NOT in the center of the blade. This will throw the balance off greatly and is very difficult to correct. New blades should be inspected for this before you use them.
