Converting older balancer to cone style

    Hi Magna Matic,

    I have an older version of the Magna1000 blade balancer with the ball that protrudes from the magnet. I always seem to have problems getting our blades to align correctly so the ball is positioned squarely in the hole of the blade. I was wondering if the newer style cone could be purchased and installed in place of the ball. I believe the cone style centering post would be a huge improvement for my balancer.

    Thank you

    Hello Rob,

    Actually the balancer you are describing is a MAG-500 - it has a limited hole size range and that is what seems to be the problem for you.

    The MAG-500 and MAG-1000 are not the same balancer therefore they do not have interchangeable parts.

    Please call me if you would like to trade up to a MAG-1000 - there is an price incentive to do so. 800-328-1110

    Thank you,
