Just how sensitive is the Magna-Matic MAG-1000 Balancer?
Pretty Darn Sensitive! To prove a point with a friend, I took three cell phone videos of his blade: prior to balancing, after it was perfectly balanced, and then I then stuck a short piece of vinyl tape to the blade tip and the blade dipped.
So how much did this piece of tape weigh you ask?
0.1 gram. (One tenth of a gram, weighed using a jeweler's gram scale)
What's a gram?
1.0 gram = 0.0352739619 ounces
So a tenth of one gram = 0.00352739619 ounces
Rounding up makes this almost 4/1000 (four thousandths) of an ounce.
Sensitive? You bet it is!
