    Does your blade balancer work with the Walker GHS blades. I am concerned about the mounting hub/shear bolts that remain on the Walker blades when you remove them from the spindle.

    To my knowledge there should be no problem with any blade on the market to be used with the MAG-1000.

    The outside diameter of the outer ring of the magnet is 2-1/2 inches.

    If you have any concern of the use of the MAG-1000 you may order one, and if it is not able to be used you may send it back for a full refund (less the shipping costs) within 30 days. This can be done with any of our products.

    The other route we can go is: You could send us one of your blades and we could test it, and then let you know that way.

    We would be very interested to know if there is a blade out there that our balancer cannot be used with.

    Thank you,

    You probably have to take the blade cups off to balance them. The hole on the cups is not round, has two flat sides to index onto the spindles, so that would not allow the blade to sit on the balancer correctly ? Maybe if upside down ??

    The balancer works fine w/ walker blades... no need to take the cup off.
