My Magnamatic 9000 and 1000 blade balancer came in today!! Very excited to use it and I will post up my opinions of it after I use it in another thread.

Those are a thing of beauty, I have the balancer but don't have the grinder.

Is it bad that I use a plastic blade balance that I got from lowes?
It seems to work.

Any balancing is better than none. Even a nail on the wall will do.

None is necessary however...maybe on a 21" but not on real commercial units.

So than what is the point of buying that expensive machine the OP posted? I am just wondering - not trolling.

Think of how fast the blades are spinning, if there out of balance that will cause vibration which is bad for the spindle bearings.

I know why I balance them.

I'm wondering about the above comment.

I have already noticed the decks got much less noisy and don't vibrate nearly as much on startup. Every one of my blades was extremely far from balanced.... On every machine
