    Your calling me a Moron???????? Why dont you reread what you wrote their einstien .

    Mine's a piece of junk, but for $3, what do you expect. I've put grease on it and it still doesn't work. Put a blade on and one side is heavy, lift the blade off and turn it 180 degrees and it shows the opposite end of the blade is heavy

    You stated as well as everyone mechanicaly inclined knows what it says
    one side shows heavey say were looking at the blade horizantal , left side is heavey you turn the blade 180 which means the OPOSITE side is going to show heavy , I dont like being called a Moron by someone who cant even comperhend what he wrote in the first damn place

    Ah figures id get called a moron by someone thats not even in the buisness quote Years in business:
    None, but I've mowed a lot of grass

    I HAVE been in the business--part time, for two years. I'm not IN the business now.

    When I placed the blade on the balancer, it showed the left end to be heavy. When I lifted the blade off the balancer, swapped it end for end, and placed it back on the balancer, it STILL showed the left end to be heavy. This was the opposite end of the blade. I guess my blade must be in balance because it shows that BOTH ends are heavy!!!

    I suppose the bore isn't centered in the cone properly or something. Like I said, it is a piece of junk.

    Einstein was a very smart man, by the way.

    Aint no one fighting , I just cant understand how it would show both ends as being heavy , I have 3 of these things and always had good luck . Nails wont work for blades with the star shaped drive hole in them anyhow. So i use the cone balancers and never ever had it show a light end heavey . always showed me the heavey end

    I've read that you can also balance them on a wood dowel. It might not be NASA precision...
