Re: Wheel,driveshaft balancer?

I know you asked for a spin balancer, but if you are driving slow speed or off rad, how about a bubble balancer? Static balance isn't too bad for big chunky tires. Harbor Freight sells one for cheap. I hate their stuff, but they have one. Remember, static balance is all that they used to use up to the mid 70's.

a friend of mine used to spin his drivelines on a lathe with hose clamps lightly attached. when it is spun, the heavy screw section goes where the weight is needed. he'd just tighten them up, but you could sure tack weights in place there too.
